Can a male yeast infection make me sterile?
I’ve got a question here from a guy in the States. Can a male yeast infection make me sterile?
Well, it’s not really something I’ve ever heard of. I mean there’s always a possibility that it may occur, but sterility doesn’t generally occur as a result of a Candida infection. Candida can affect you reproductively in different ways, but for a guy to become sterile is not something I’ve really ever heard of through a yeast infection.
However, there are a couple problems that can occur with a chronic and serious yeast infection with a male and one of them is prostate dysfunction. I’ve certainly seen prostatitis or a guy get an inflamed prostate from a major Candida infection. I’ve seen this on numerous occasions. And also a Candida infection can be passed from female to male.
But for a guy to become sterile with a yeast infection is another whole ball game. So if you’ve got concerns regarding this issue, make sure you get checked out by your doctor and have a discussion about this issue. But it’s not something that I would really concern myself about.
I hope that answers the question. Thanks for tuning in.
