Ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma hominis--causes of infertility?

Maybe miscarriages: Ureaplasma & mycoplasma hominis have been implicated in single miscarriages or recurrent pregnancy losses. The studies are not high quality, but it's relatively cheap and easy to give a course of antibiotics to women who have had one or more miscarriages, & their partners.

Vulvar Folliculitis: Assuming that the lesions are truly pilo-pustular in origin [see image], the most common bacterial causes are staphylococcus and pseudomonas sp. M. Hominis is, of course, associated with cervicitis and vaginitis, and very infrequently with vulvovaginitis [photo from uptodate.Com, reproduced with permission from lynne j margesson, md]. ...Read more

Mycobacterium intracellulare infection, am i contagious?

Mycobacterium intracellulare infection, am i contagious?

Many mycobacteria: There are >200 species of mycobacteria. We worry about mycobacterium tuberculosis because it can be transmitted between people. Atypical mycobacterium, like mai, are not contageous. These are in our h2o supply ; we drink/inhale them. Most are problematic in people w/lung diseases (copd/cystic fibrosis) or those who are immunocompromised (hiv/transplant patients). In normal hosts usually no worry. ...Read more

Psmear result, pus cell 6-8, epithelial cell ++, gram +vecocci++@+vebacili+, gram-vecocci, -vebacili nil, fungal hype@trichomonas nil, do  ihve to wory?

No worry : The primary purpose of pap smear is to detect cancer or pre-cancerous changes of the cervix. Nothing in your report suggests that. Gram positive and gram negative bacteria along with some fungus, epithelial cells, and leukocytes are all normal inhabitants of the vaginal flora. The presence of trichomonas (std) or hpv (std linked to cancer of cervix) would be abnormalities requiring treatment. ...Read more

Hi, I suffer from reaplasma parvum biovar 1 and ureaplasma ureaticum biovar 2.What are biovars.

Hi, I suffer from reaplasma parvum biovar 1 and ureaplasma ureaticum biovar 2.What are biovars.

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. U. 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. ...Read more

Is ureaplasma urealyticum/parvum linked to hiv.

Is ureaplasma urealyticum/parvum linked to hiv.

No link: Ureaplasma parvum and most strains of U urealyticum are normal genital tract bacteria, present in the vagina or male urinary tract in at least 50% of healthy persons. UU sometimes causes nongonococcal/nonspecific urethritis in men (NGU, NSU), but no health problems in women are known. There is no link with HIV. Your nearest NHS GUM clinic is an excellent source for additional information. ...Read more

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

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

Meaning?

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the colony count, the dominant organism and multiple organism all suggest that this is not real urinary infection. The organisms are likely to be skin contaminants. ...Read more
