What is the best treatment for mycoplasma hominis when its diagnosed as an sti?

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

Can men be treated easily for mycoplasma hominis?

Can men be treated easily for mycoplasma hominis?

Will mycoplasma hominis show on a regular vaginal culture like BV will?

Will mycoplasma hominis show on a regular vaginal culture like BV will?

I suggest you set up a virtual consult with him. His name is Dr. H. Hunter Handsfeld or something very close to that. They restrict you to only 400 spaces on this site and I find that too limiting. ...Read more

Is there an antibiotic that will work to get rid of both enterococcus faecalis and mycoplasma hominis at the same time?

Dual Organisms: Yes, there are several. In your case, you had a reported culture and sensitivity (c&s) lab study that specifically tested the bacteria that have affected you with a panel of antibiotics. Since there is increasing antibiotic resistance emerging with many strains, only your individual c&s should be interpreted for you, not generalized to all patients. ...Read more

I got successfully treated for mycoplasma hominis but I'm still having yellow discharge, abdominal discomfort and a bloated stomacj?

Infection? PID?: Something doesn't compute. Mycoplasma hominis is normal in the genital tract, does not cause vaginal discharge or abdominal pain, and does not need antibiotic treatment. Maybe an STD or other potentially serious infection, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) including chlamydia or gonorrhea. Return to your doctor or see a genitourinary medicine specialist, e.g. an NHS GUM clinic. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe not "always" there, but probably a lot of the time. No worries! ...Read more
