Even if these infections are on a regular basis i.e. weekly.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
no I just cannot believe there are no repercussions for these continuous infections..
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Pregnancy is related to ovulation (done by ovaries), which are transferred through fallopian tubes to uterus where the implantation occurs. Vagina is conduit to transfer sperms. A recurrent infection of vagina may not affect the sperm transfer. But these recurrent infections denote a systemic problem which may be related to overall health and low body resistance. That may affect the fertility not the infections.
