Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Cervicitis caused by infectious aetiologies, which include all Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), is far more common than noncontagious causes. Because the female genital tract connects the vulva to the fallopian tubes, there is considerable overlap between vulvovaginitis and cervicitis; the two disorders are commonly classified as lower genital tract contaminations. The cervix, urethra, salpinges, uterus, nasopharynx, and epididymis are all affected by C trachomatis illness. Pregnant women with untreated genital herpes in the first or second trimester appear to have a more than twofold risk of preterm birth when compared to women who are not exposed to herpes.
