Mycoplasma Infections Treatment
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.

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.

Chronic mycoplasma infection. Been on minocycline 4 weeks and no improvement at all. Also very few side effects. What's going on? What can I do?
More info needed: What sort of Mycoplasma infection are you concerned about? Pulmonary (lung) or genital? If genital, probably mycoplasma has nothing to do with it. Various mycoplasmas are normal in the genital tract, and a positive test doesn't mean it is the cause of your symptoms. If it were, the minocycline would have taken care of it. Maybe you should see a gyn who subspecializes in infectious diseases. ...Read more
