According to the literature in many cases viruses reside in the urogenital tract together with various combinations of microflora.
On the basis of the aforementioned findings [17], we hypothesized the following: (1) simulated birth trauma and OVX decrease leak point pressures (LPPs) and plasma estradiol levels; (2) simulated birth trauma and OVX induce atrophy of the urogenital tract and the expression of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) with induced nitric oxide synthase (iNOS); (3) ER[alpha] and ER[beta] expression are altered by simulated birth trauma and OVX in a mouse model of SUI.

It is the only known pathogenic species of trichomonas regularly found in humans and the only one known to inhabit the urogenital tract. (7) Morphologically, it is similar to the other trichomonads, except that it has an undulating membrane that extends less than half of the body length.
"I've worked with this species," says David Crews of the University of Texas at Austin, and "these are about the toughest amphibians in the world." So he was impressed by the new data, which suggest that something about agriculture's proximity--probably the runoff of pesticides or other farm chemicals--is "essentially remaking the individual," inappropriately "resculpting" a male tadpole's urogenital tract. It's so muddled in intersex animals, he says, that they will likely never breed.
"Prolapse is a disfiguring disorder of the urogenital tract that is often hidden" but could still have negative effects on body image.
