Ureaplasma And Mycoplasma
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. Mycoplasma genitalium may be a cause pelvic inflammatory disease (pid). See a rei specialist if ttc without success. ...Read more
Bacteria: Ureaplasma urealyticum is a bacterium belonging to the family Mycoplasmataceae. Its type strain is T960. U. urealyticum is part of the normal genital flora of both men and women. It is found in about 70% of sexually active humans. there is no linkage with any other infections but one can have both infections simultaneously. ...Read more
Which is better for treating Trich, mycoplasma genit and hominis, ureaplasma urealyticum. Doxycycline or Azithromycin?
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
If negative tests for bv, chlamydia, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, herpes, syphilis, gonorrea, trichomonas, hiv, what can be causes of cervicitis/urethritis?
NGNCU: Mycoplasma genitalium can cause inflammation of the urethra (urethritis) not resulting from gonococcus or chlamydia. This is known as nongonococcal nonchlamydial urethritis (ngncu). It can also cause infection of the female genitourinary tract (cervicitis, endometritis, and pelvic inflammatory disease). Hope this helps. ...Read more
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
See below: From UpToDate: Mycoplasma genitalium is also a common cause in pre-menopausal women. In post-menopausal women PID is not common, but E.coli and anaerobic bacteria are often the cause......* However, in most cases, the precise microbial etiology of PID is unknown. Regardless of the initiating pathogen, PID is clinically considered a mixed infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bacterial vaginosis?: Ureaplasma is normal in female genital tract, rarely any need to test and if a test is positive, usually no treatment required. Gardnerella is also normal, but "recurrent gardnerella infection" suggests bacterial vaginosis. BV is overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria, including Gardnerella. The usual treatment is metronidazole (Flagyl®) by mouth. No other antibiotic is needed because of Ureaplasma. ...Read more
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
No.: Chlamydia pneumoniae causes respiratory infection and is transmitted through the air. It is not sexually transmitted. Pap smear is not designed to detect chlamydia infection of any kind. Diagnosis of chladmyida trachomatis is by culture or dna testing. See this site for more information. http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/reporter/index.html?id=779. ...Read more
Can staphylococcus haemolyticus cause prostatitis?
All major std negative. Urine culture shows staphylococcus haemolyticus. Prostatitis?
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
No: Bv doesn't show on culture, either; diagnosis is by clue cells on microscopy. Mycoplasma has no cell wall, and will not grow on standard culture.. It is a common found colonizer, so the presence is not a diagnosis of infection. ...Read more
Can a pap smear detect the most common std's like chlamydia, genital herpes, HIV infection, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis and hepatitis b?
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
Vaginal itching and very sore nipples. Tested negative for gonorrhea, chlamydia, trich, bv and yeast. What can it be??
See a doctor/OB: This is highly dependent on where you are in your menstrual cycle and if you have missed any periods. Go to an OB, get a full exam and give all your relevant history. Could be pre-menstrual symptoms or something else if your period is late - pregnancy. But the doctor will help narrow down the possibilities... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
