Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama, trich all negative. No std found.?
Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more

Is Doxylag considered a suitable antibiotic to treat a mycoplasma genitalium infection? If not, please advise which antibiotic is more preferred
Not reliable: Doxycycline (Doxylag and other brands) sometimes works against M. genitalium but is not reliable.

If you have a proved MG infection (positive test) or have NGU that didn't respond to doxy or azithromycin, ask your doctor about moxifloxacin. ...Read more
If tested positive for unreaplasma/mycoplasma after treatment could I be reinfected by someone w/o this infection. Will I always have this infection?
Normal bacteria: These are normal bacteria in the genital tract; at any time, half of all sexually active people have them. They are shared sexually, but rarely cause symptoms or disease. No treatment is needed for them. It is normal for them to reappear after treatment. You do not have "an infecion"; you are simply carrying normal bacteria. Maybe not "always" there, but probably a lot of the time. No worries! ...Read more
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! ...Read more
