  • Anything that throws off the balance in your body can hinder your getting pregnant. If you currently have an infection, then yes.

  • I don't see how. Your urinary tract is different than your reproductive organs, and all you are doing is drinking cranberry juice, which is good for you....so I am gonna go ahead and say no.

  • Cranberry juice doesn't cure an infection, it only hides the symptoms. You need to see a doctor and get antibiotics. As for it stopping you from getting pregnant, I'm not sure but it can be very damaging to the baby if you do get pregnant and have an infection anywhere.

  • If you have an infection your body is off kilter. All your systems respond to any type of infection whether you think/notice it or not. Thats just how our body works...
    Anytime you are sick, infected... anything like that... it would make it harder to conceive.
