    Yes. There are chances of getting infection over the cervix if the yeast infection is not treated well. Yeast infection is known as candidiasis and caused by “candida albicans” yeast.

    Candida, the microorganism that creates a yeast infection, can spread. Although it may not cause a Cervical infection by definition, it can cause cervical irritation if it gets bad enough.

    Candida is one of the most widely overlooked epidemics of this country. It is blood-soluble so if a yeast infection is left untreated, it can spread anywhere.

    Most common areas of infection for yeast infections are:

    1. The vagina or penis
    2. The lower digestive tract
    3. The prostate in males
    4. The brain (causes a symptoms known as brain fog)
