How STIs Affect the Reproductive System

Sexual organs are part of the reproductive system. Sexually transmitted infection (STIs) can affect reproductive organs, fuction and system. STIs are various diseases which are trasmitted by having sex (oral, anal or vaginal). STIs are also called "venereal diseases'. Examples include: Gonorrhea, Syphilis , Clamidia, Herpes, Hepatitis and Aids. Some of them (e.g. Gonorrhea and Syphilis) might present clinical symptoms in sexual organs that could dissapear without treatment, but it does not means that the diseases is cured. Some STIs (e.g. Hepatitis, Aids) affect other internal organs. Be careful: even one singel sexual intercourse with ifected person  can cause STIs transmission.

Both men and women are concerned by STIs, but women have higher risk of being infected. In women, STIs could destroy endomentrium or vaginal cervic. Diseases my sometimes exist without noticable infection signs. In man, usually the first infected organs is urethra. Most of STIs can be completely cured. but viral STIs are still difficult to treat. STIs incompletely treated can develop many potential complications, such as infertility, ectopic pregnancy, preterm delivery, fetal abnormalities and possible infant infection. STIs may generalize infection from reproductive organs  to the organs causing for example brain never damage, cancer and other. Keep in mind that STIs patients are higher risk of being infected by HIV and AIDS.
