Infections That Can Cause Infertility
Infections could be said to be the invasion of harmful parasite or microorganism that causes havoc to the human body. Most infections that are left untreated or not perfectly treated can cause huge damages like infertility both in men and women.
Infertility is said to be a disease that causes the male and female reproductive systems to fail at achieving pregnancy after periods of unprotected intimacy.
Below are different infections that can cause infertility if they are not being treated properly:
Gonorrhea is an awfully dangerous sexually transmitted infection. In men, it causes green, yellow, or white discharge from their genital, burning around the genital and causing the testicles to swell up. This infection leads to prostate gland infection which lowers the quality and production of sperm.
Gonorrhea in women causes frequent urination, itching, discharge, burning, swelling, redness to the genital. The infection can spread to a woman's fallopian tube and uterus and cause what is called Pelvic Inflammatory disease which leads to chronic pelvic pain. It affects pregnancy in the sense that it causes miscarriage and premature birth. And also cause eye infection in a newborn baby during birth.
Two: Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
Urinary tract infection is known as the unwanted growth of bacteria in the urinary tract, which causes a burning sensation during urination, fever, and chills. It can happen to both men and women.
The infection can cause low sperm count in men, thereby leading to infertility.
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease that can permanently scar and block the reproductive parts of a man and disturb the production of sperm. Its symptoms follow discharge, burning sensation while urinating, and swelling up of the testicles.
Four: Vaginal Yeast Infection
This is also known as candida is one of the most common infections that women experience, which can be treated within weeks or months, and if left untreated could cause infertility.
The infection causes infertility by making vagina flora unbalanced, and that makes it hard for sperm to reach the uterus to fertilize the egg.
