You’ve been diagnosed with staph infection, and now you may be wondering, “How will this affect my fertility?”
That’s a great question to ask. First of all a staph infection is a bacterial infection caused usually by the bacteria that lives on our skin. Most of the time, this bacteria does not affect us adversely. However, there are times that a bacterial infection can cause problems.
One type of infection is Staphylococcus epidermis; this infection lives on your skin, and most people who have it have little to no difficulties with it. The other type of infection is Staphylococcus aureus; you likely remember hearing it called MRSA:Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. When staph infections enter wounds and are left untreated, they can cause vast challenges not only in other body systems but also in fertility.
Staphylococcus aureus is found in a variety of places, such as the respiratory tract (nostrils), on skin, in open wounds, and in the urinary tract. This version of staph is aggressive, and without proper treatment, can cause low sperm count, affect male organs of reproduction, and create watery seminal fluid. This staph infection can also infect your bloodstream, joints and bones if left untreated.
Some bacterial infections will lodge in the testis, the epididymis, and even the prostrate. Any time you have an infection, it can throw you off your game; in these instances, it throws your sperm off their game. The infection slows down sperm production, weakens the sperm themselves, and can even block their passage with scar tissue, making it difficult or impossible to get where they are supposed to go.
Staph infection (Staphylococcus aureus) can also immobilize sperm count. A Staphylococcus infection – of which there are multiple varieties — can present in several ways. Untreated Staphylococcus aureus even has caused death. Notably, many antibiotics have little affect on this staph infection due to overuse. A stronger antibiotic may be prescribed, and a doctor may drain any infected abscesses you have.
However, an antibiotic is not your only choice in treating staph and restoring your fertility.
