whats mycoplasma genitalium?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Michael Ekizian

NGNCU: Mycoplasma genitalium can cause inflammation of the urethra (urethritis) not resulting from gonococcus or chlamydia. This is known as nongonococcal nonchlamydial urethritis (ngncu). It can also cause infection of the female genitourinary tract (cervicitis, endometritis, and pelvic inflammatory disease). Hope this helps.

Nope: M genitalium is not carried in the oral cavity. Therefore, oral sex isn't a risk; MG is transmitted only by vaginal or anal sex.
