Although many conventional doctors do not recognize candida - one of the many types of fungi that live in the intestinal tract - it is linked to endometriosis, fibroids and ovarian cysts. It also may be linked to low sperm counts and motility issues with men. It can create a hormonal imbalance in your body. A candida waste product produces a false estrogen, and the body thinks it has produced adequate estrogen levels. This signals a reduction in its own estrogen. This can lead to infertility. Candida can also be transferred to your partner during sexual intercourse.
