: 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.
: Sincerely,
: 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
: possible
: explanation to some unexplained cases.

: take care,
: Kim B.

Dear Kim, this is just one man's opinion. I highly suggest that you get still another opinion. Start with your first doctor. Dr. Licciardi
