Research shows that thrush does not have the ability to cause infertility. This infection is located in the vaginal area and does not have the ability to get past the cervix. This means that it does not have the ability to reach the Fallopian tube because it cannot reach this far in the body. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Thrush is something that is usually treated with creams and tablets. However, treatment of thrush should not take place when a woman is pregnant. Although this is a common infection in people with HIV, it can affect a great number of people because the yeast for it is found in everyone’s bodies.

However, even though you cannot completely prevent this infection, you can make your chances of developing it lower if you maintain a healthy immune system. It can also be found in the mouth and throat along with the vagina and can be a precursor for other more serious infections.

This infection is actually called Thrush only when it is found in the mouth, but the same infection is what causes yeast infections as well. Along with these common areas, this same infection can also spread throughout the body and affect the brain, joints, heart and eyes as well.
