Do doctors in the us offer testing for mycoplasma genitalium or is it only in the research settting? Will it show up on pap smear?
Not a routine test: Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs, e.g. PCR) for M. genitalium are now offered by many labs, but some tests are not FDA approved and M gen testing is not done routinely in STD checkups, except (as you suggest) for research. It doesn't show up on pap smear. Most infections are not believed to be harmful, so no worires if neither you nor partner(s) have discharge or other STD symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Detailed story. Pain that us sharp or shooting into tip of of penis and occasionally tickly feeling. No discharge, no urination pain, frequency normal. Negative stis cant test for hpv didn't test for trichomoniasis, Hpv or mycoplasma genitalium. N?
Penile pain near tip. Weird sensation at times and sharp or pointed at times. Comprehensive Sti testing done all negative. No test for hpv, trich, or mycoplasma genitalium. No discharge, no urination pain. Would hpv, trich, or mycoplasma do this?
It would be unusual.: Your report is confusing in that "comprehensive" STI testing would have included all of these things. And if negative, that's fairly definitive, although if this all just started you might need to be tested again, especially if pain worsens or if any rash develops. Have your sexual contacts been tested? That's the next step. ...Read more
Which antibiotics are the most effective with the lowest failure rate when treating Mycoplasma Genitalium and Ureaplasma. No testing in united states?
Moxifloxacin: M. genitalium usually responds to usual nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) Rx (doxycycline or azithromycin). Some M gen strains are resistant to them; moxifloxacin is the main back-up if NGU persists after both doxy and azithro. M gen testing is not yet routine. Ureaplasma rarely causes NGU or other disease; it's a normal bacteria found in the genital tract of 50% of all sexually active people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. However, doxy is one of the best treatments for nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), even though 10-15% of NGU is due to MG. 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
