Can I be tested for Trich, mycoplasma genit and hominis, ureaplasma urealyticum? Clear of Chlam and Gon but have SX of PID.

Yes: Trichomonas can be seen under the microscope in the doctors office in a sample of vaginal discharge. It is a bacterium with a flagellum that swims around. There are tests for mycoplasma and ureaplasma but they are very specialized and not usually available at a standard doctor's office. Its actually easier to treat them empirically rather than test for them. Best wishes! ...Read more

Had a mycoplasma and ureaplasma vaginal swab test done while I was on nitrofurantoin for something unrelated. Can this possibly cause false negative?

Had a mycoplasma and ureaplasma vaginal swab test done while I was on nitrofurantoin for something unrelated. Can this possibly cause false negative?

No: Nitrofurantoin is used almost exclusively for either the treatment or prevention of a lower urinary tract infection (aka bladder infection, cystitis). It has no activity that I am aware of against either mycoplasma or ureaplasma and would therefore not cause a false negative vaginal swab test for these 2 organisms. ...Read more

Hi,I'm having severe abdominal pain.I also suffer from ureaplasma urealyticum/parvum.Is this one of the symptoms.

However, if you are at risk for STD, maybe your pain is pelvic inflammatory disease (Fallopian tube infection), which can be serious. ...Read more
