No risk, no worry: You keep asking about urine exposure and STDs. First, Ureaplasma and most types of Mycoplasma are normal bacteria in the genital tract, not STDs; they cause no symptoms or harm. They probably are not transmitted by urine. Urine inhibits most STD bacteria and viruses, and urine rarely transmits any STD. This is your third question about it. Let's make it your last, OK?
