Will viral urinary system infections affect my reproductive organs?

Viral urinary system infections primarily affect the organs involved in the production, storage, and passage of urine in the body. This includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Viral urinary system infections are usually caused by bacteria but may be caused by herpes simplex virus, a common virus in sexually transmitted disease. Viral urinary system infections, if treated, should not affect your reproductive organs, but if left untreated, infection can spread causing complications with reproduction. Complications include miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, inflammation of the ovaries, and fertility issues.
