Fertility expert blames men’s negligence for recurring infections in women

Victor Ayoola, a trado-medical practitioner and CEO of Anaxon Wellness, has decried rising cases of recurring reproductive tract infections among women, blaming scourge on their partner’s refusal to seek medical attention.

A recent study published by Wayne State University School of Medicine reports that about 138 million women globally contend with recurrent candida or yeast vaginitis, in which figure is expected to hit 150 million by 2030.

Ayoola who deals mainly in women’s fertility issue disabused the popular impression that fertility is a woman’s problem, maintaining that both sexes are not left out.

He said that oftentimes when women present cases of infections in their reproductive system, their partner do not show up for treatment , thereby making medical procedures ineffective or offer temporary relief, while ailment returns.

“It is very common to hear men say nothing is wrong with them when invited, yet they already had sex with the same women infected, which automatically makes them vulnerable. Their refusal to get treated keep their partner in ailment forever”, he said.
