I e-mailed Dr. Toth with questions about fungus infections and received a reply back today. Dr. Toth is a specialist and an
expert in the field of infections of the
reproductive tract and the impact it has on fertility. This is the reply he sent to me:

Dear Kim:
I am sorry to hear that you spent so much time and money on fertility therapy
while the cause of your infertility could have been easily corrected by
simple antifungal medication. It is our routine practice to test the semen,
vagina, cervix and endometrium for fungal infections and give therapy
accordingly before we proceed with more involved ART procedures.
Attila Toth, MD.

UGH!!!! Why didn't my RE's (both the old one and the new one) test me for this in the first place???? Unfortunately, a lot of RE's do not
practice the above, as in my case. The response from Dr. Toth really made me feel better,
because here it is confirming that fungal infections (strains other than harmless candida) do exist AND are harmful. This makes a whole lot of sense in my case as to why picture
perfect cycles keep failing over and over and over (including my natural cycles). The strain of fungus infection in my lining is toxic to embryos. I just thought I would share, as this is a
explanation to some unexplained cases.

take care,
Kim B.
