Shingles do not have the power to cause infertility. Instead, they are simply a form of the chicken pox. Anyone who has had chicken pox when they were younger may develop shingles as an adult. The particular virus that causes chicken pox remains in the body even after the symptoms have disappeared. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

When our immunity is low, we may see this virus reappear in the form of shingles. Shingles are very painful and are very contagious as well. They can easily spread from one person to the next and can actually cause young children to develop chicken pox.

If you develop shingles, it is important that you have them treated by a doctor as soon as possible. The sooner that you are able to catch them, the sooner you will be able to rid your body of them. This will greatly cut down on the amount of pain that you feel and will help you to avoid a significant amount of down time because of them.

While many people develop shingles, they do not appear until we are adults and can be very painful. However, they are not something that affects our fertility and can be treated by visiting with your doctor.
