What are sexually transmitted diseases?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that are mainly transmitted during unprotected sexual intercourse. However, they can also be transferred from mother to child during pregnancy.

Who generates sexually transmitted diseases?

There are over 30 different types of STDs, most of which are caused by a virus (HIV, human papillomavirus and hepatitis), bacteria (gonorrhoea, syphilis and chlamydia) or fungi (candidiasis).

If infections of this kind are not detected and treated over time, they can lead to couples having serious reproduction issues. The STDs that generally and most frequently cause abnormalities in a person’s reproductive health are ureaplasma, chlamydiamycoplasma and gonorrhoea.

What is the impact of sexually transmitted diseases on fertility?

Furthermore, STDs in pregnant women can lead to pregnancy losses and premature births.
