Normal bacteria: I doubt you "suffer" from either of these bacteria. Both are entirely normal in the genital tract. "Biovar" is a technical term that doesn't mean anything here. Ureaplasma parvum is the same as biovar 1, and U. urealyticum the same as biovar 2 -- just different names for the same things. They rarely if ever cause symtoms or disease and no treatment is necessary. Don't worry about it.

Gynecologist: If you are a woman, any gynecologist that has the ability to do pcr testing can test for those bacteria. Ditherix is one lab available for this specific type of bacteria testing. Often fertility doctors will test for this as part of an infertility evaluation for women.
