These infections can lead to vaginal discharge, itching, dysparunea etc local symptoms,
If they spread to upper genital tract they can cause pelvic inflammatory disease with tubo-ovarian abscess etc,
Sometimes they can also lead to systemic complications like metastatic infection to lung, liver, heart valves etc.
But with early treatment all these can be avoided,
Both partners has to be treated simultaneously to prevent future recurrence.
Take care.
