Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.

Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.

UU doesn't show up on routine tests; testing is rarely needed except in special circumstances. So nothing to worry about, especially if no symptoms. If in doubt, see an STD or infectious diseases expert. Good luck! ...Read more
