In brief: There can be many

Some can affect you and some can affect the fetus.
For example if you have beta strep bacteria in the vagina and don't know it, you may not have any symptoms , but it could possilly make the baby very sick when it is born. That is why all pg women get tested for beta strep toward the end of their pg , because if it is + , the mother gets antibiotics so the baby hoepfully will not get it.
