Reproductive Tract Infections

Reproductive tract infections (RTIs) are defined as any infections of the reproductive system. They include sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and other infections of the reproductive system that are not caused by sexual contact. These other infections may be the result of the overgrowth of the bacteria and other organisms that normally live in the vagina. RTIs also include infections that result from inadequate infection prevention practices by health care providers.

Although RTIs affect both women and men, research shows that women are more susceptible to infection and often less likely to seek treatment than men. In addition, complications can be more serious in women and infections can be transmitted to the offspring of pregnant women.

The symptoms associated with STIs and other RTIs vary from none to severe. You cannot always tell if a person has an STI, and people without symptoms often transmit the infection to others unknowingly. If you believe you have an RTI or have been exposed to or at risk for STIs, you should talk to a health care provider as soon as possible.
