I have a kidney infection, a urinary track infection and fluids on my pelvis do all these affect me from getting pregnant?
I've been trying to get pregnant for the past 6 months and I'm having problems with it. Please help me.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Infection changes pH of secretions and causes local inflammatory changes making environment hostile for sperms. If you wish to get pregnant monitor cervix position, cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. On an average, women are known to get pregnant within 3-4 months of trying (if there are no other factors affecting fertility), hence, if you are not successful in your pregnancy plans within 6 months to 1 year of trying, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist to get a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider visiting your gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
