Hi, Thanks for replying on my previous posting. I went to see my gynae earlier (I had been suffering from severe pains since yesterday afternoon in my lower abdomen and also am suffering from nausea). She did an internal and told me that I have severe infection. What causes infection and will I still be able to conceive while suffering from infection?

If the infection was just in the vagina, this could be thrush. If, however, it was a pelvic infection, these are usually sexually transmitted. This can cause tubal damage which could interfere with conception.
