Gonorrhea : Gonorrhea can lead to infertility. Untreated gonorrhea during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage and preterm delivery. Gonorrhea can be transmitted to the baby as it goes through the birth canal during delivery. The resulting infections can lead to blindness, infected joints and even death if the blood becomes infected.
