Will BV Affect My Chances for Getting Pregnant or Having a Healthy Pregnancy ?

Posted on

BV is three times more common to be found in infertile women than fertile women. BV, and other infections in general, can cause decreased fertility in a number of ways:

  • Increasing inflammation and immune system activity, making a toxic environment for reproduction.
  • Causing damage to sperm and vaginal cells.
  • Interfering with the production of healthy cervical mucus during ovulation.
  • Blocking the Fallopian Tubes through scar tissue damage from infections, so that sperm and egg can’t meet.
