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
Is there is a chance my ex (who I wore a condom with) has ureaplasma/mycoplasma, could I also have it? Should I get checked and take antibiotics?
If I have mycoplasma/ureaplasma would it show on a normal urine culture? My urologist said my symptoms show I have that but cultures come out negative
Difficult to grow: These organisms are difficult to grow, therefore a negative culture does not rule out infection. You may ask your doctor for a molecular test. ...Read more
If negative tests for bv, chlamydia, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, herpes, syphilis, gonorrea, trichomonas, hiv, what can be causes of cervicitis/urethritis?
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
Which antibiotics are the most effective with the lowest failure rate when treating Mycoplasma Genitalium and Ureaplasma. No testing in united states?
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
What causes prostatitis? All std tests negative. Mycoplasma and ureaplasma tests negative. Urine culture negative. 6 woks cipro (ciprofloxacin) not cured Contagious?
Prostatitis: Only 30% of the cases are due to infection. The rest have no known cause and no known cure. Sometimes drugs that reduce prostate size or those that reduce the symptoms help. See your urologist. ...Read more
Is ureaplasma or micoplasma contagious from sitting on a toilet (urine contact) in a public facility, etc. Is it true that many people have ureaplasma and don't even know it?
Which is better for treating Trich, mycoplasma genit and hominis, ureaplasma urealyticum. Doxycycline or Azithromycin?
Not always: Ureaplasma is a common bacteria found in the genitourinary system. Sometimes it causes infections and sometimes it doesn't and we don't know why. Not all tests will diagnose it and sometimes it's unfairly blamed for certain diseases. It should only be treated with antibiotics if it's causing a serious issue that isn't being caused by some other bug. ...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. Ureaplasma 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
Here are some...: Ureaplasma is known as a bug causing NGU -non-gonorrheal urethritis but with relatively low virulence. For average healthy persons, kissing alone should not cause its related disease as long as there is no breakthrough of natural barriers-skin and mucosa although transmitting bugs from contacting with environments is inevitable.

Here are some. ..: I have never read articles or heard discussion specifically related with this question, and there has been no known scientific studies designed and conducted specifically to address this concern. Fact: Bacteria are everywhere and we have to cope with them by exercising the best possible precaution and enhancing immune defense ability with low-risk healthy lifestyle. So, commonsense will answer.... ...Read more
Here are some. ..: Known to us, in a sense, ureaplasm urealyticum is an oppportunistic organism, which may exist in genital tract without symptoms. For your condition, just live on with no practical need to worry and drive self crazy. In fact, we all have to fight against the invisible war with all surrounding. Environmental micro-orqnisms with natural bariers (skin/mucosa) and personal immune defense (humoral). .. ...Read more
