Can sexually transmitted diseases affect the possibility of pregnancy?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also known as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), can lead to infertility issues in both women and men. They comprise a range of contagious clinical conditions caused by bacteria, viruses, and fungi, which can be transmitted from person to person through sexual contact. Both vaginal, anal, and oral sex carry the risk of transmitting STDs.

Typically, infertility caused by STDs stems from various factors that collectively hinder fertilization and/or subsequent pregnancy. For instance, tubal obstruction, endometritis, testicular inflammation, etc.

Infections from such microorganisms in both men and women can impede pregnancy by affecting sperm quality, the functionality of the fallopian tubes, or the fertilization process between egg and sperm. At FERTILITY EXPERTS BARCELONA, we offer tests to rule out these types of infections and assess your future fertility.
