Harmless, not an STD: Mycoplasma hominis is a normal bacteria in the genital tract. It can be shared among sex partners, but causes no disease and is not considered an STD. Whatever symptoms you have, M. hominis is not the cause and I cannot imagine a good reason why you might have been tested for it. Discuss with your doctor, or see a genitourinary medicine specialst, e.g. maybe visit your local GUM clinic. Good luck!

A 39-year-old member asked:

How can I determine the best days to try to get pregnant?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Patrick Weix
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Many methods.: The week around ovulation is the best time to get pregnant. Having sex daily or every other day during that week gives the same preg rate. If you have regular cycles, 14 days before your cycle should start is the most likely ovulation day. If you can do an ovulation calendar with basal temp check and cervical mucus, that is even more accurate. Ovulation testing kits (available otc) are even better.

What is the best method to find basal body temperature?

Dr. Neeoo Chin
Fertility Medicine 40 years experience
Not accurate: As you first wake up place a basal body thermometer underneath your tongue for approximately 3 minutes. A digital thermometer is easier and more convenient. Unfortunately basal body temperature taking is very confusing. Any type of movement or any type of activity prior to awakening in taking the temperature will falsely elevated the temperature. Also when the temperature has risen approximately .6 to 1° ovulation has already occurred.

Why does my doctor need to screen me for STDs during pregnancy?

Fetal infection: Screening is necessary because some of these infections can be transmitted to the fetus and can cause serious complications. At the same time, transmission can be prevented if treated early.

True sunstroke is…: …not a condition to be treated at home; it requires immediate medical attention to lower the body's core temperature so the brain is not permanently damaged. Lesser sun-related illnesses can be treated with cooling, fluids, salt/electrolytes, staying in cool environment. Check with doc as to whether any meds may put you at risk for heat-related problems.
