Do Recurring Yeast Infections Make Me Infertile
Hi there, Eric Bakker, author of Candida Crusherand another frequently asked question. Do recurring yeast infections make me infertile? I believe they can. And some practitionersmay argue with me about this point, but I've seen many cases of women with acute yeastinfections that became chronic. They basically were driven into the body by using differenttypes of applicators and creams, and over a period of time, the female developed endometriosis. I've seen this many times occurring. So endometriosiscan obviously lead you towards the path of infertility. When you start pushing that yeastinfection through the cervix and the endometrium,
you're going to obviously get an immune reaction.Endometriosis is an autoimmune condition and you can get potential cyst developments andovarian problems. It can certainly predispose you to infertility. If you've got a yeastinfection, get on top of it. That's my advice. Get rid of it, and it can be possible. Have a look at Chapter 5 in my book, CandidaCrusher, and you can read all about how to get rid of a chronic yeast infection. It'sa very popular chapter of my book and it's helped many women get on top of infectionsthey've had for a long, long time. So if you've got an infection, get onto itnow, because small problems become big problems.
Whether it's a mortgage, you know, that you'renot servicing a loan, health problem you're turning a blind eye to, get onto it now. It'seasy to fix a little problem than try and fix a major problem down the track. So I hope that answers your question.
How Does The Test Me For Yeast Infections
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with a further frequently asked question. How does the test me for a yeast infection? Well, there are many ways that your could potentially test. But if you're talking about a vaginal yeast infection, your will probably do a smear test and take some cell samples there of the cervix or the vaginalwall and check to see if they can culture yeast off this or bacteria. The other way that some s do it is byway of blood testing by checking for antibody
levels. But generally medical practitionerswill test by doing swabs. Not many medical practitioners really believe in systemic Candidiasisor bloodborne Candida infections, even though they do exist and there's certainly plentywritten in the medical literature about this; not many believe it. But antibody testing is quite valid, althoughsome argue that you can have antibodies all your life to Candida and not have symptoms;what we call asymptomatic. Others believe that antibody levels are significant regardlesswhether you have symptoms or not and still signify you need treatment for Candida.
I believe the best way to test for a yeastinfection is a stool test. And I'm going to do a lot of FAQs on stool testing and explainstool testing indepth to you, the various components of the stool test, and why thisis a superior way to test for yeast infection. So how does a test for yeast infection?Usually a swab or a vaginal test is the main way, if they test at all. But, yeah, thatwould be the way they would test. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
