What Causes Infection?
Tiny organisms called bacteria, fungi and viruses live all around us, and our bodies’ immune systems usually keep bad germs at bay. Your risk of infection may increase through:
- Sexual activity
- Changes in hormone levels, especially during pregnancy and perimenopause
- Foreign objects or materials, such as a catheter, diaphragm or sex toys
- Decreased immunity caused by a medical treatment or condition that weakens your immune system
- Certain medications, such as antibiotics, corticosteroids and immunosuppressant drugs
- Other medical conditions like diabetes
