Hi, I would to know is ureaplasma urealyticum/parvum cause by herpes.

No: Herpes is caused by a virus, whereas ureaplasma is another type of organism. They can certainly be transmitted through sexual contact however and treatment is different for both issues. Both partners need to be screened and treated ...Read more

Can Ureaplasma cause there to be yeast in the urine?

Can Ureaplasma cause there to be yeast in the urine?

Ureaplasma: This organism is one potential cause of non-gonococcal urethritis, often a sexually transmitted disease. The use of antibiotics to treat this can result in secondary yeast infection (vulvovaginitis), but the Ureaplasma itself does not cause yeast in the urine (and in this case the yeast is probably coming from vaginal secretions contaminating the urine specimen). ...Read more

If I get a urine test to see if I have ureaplasma while im currently taking amoxicillan, will th amoxicillan cause it to be negative even if I have it?

If I get a urine test to see if I have ureaplasma while im currently taking amoxicillan, will th amoxicillan cause it to be negative even if I have it?

Maybe, but why?: Probably there is no point in being tested for ureaplasma, unless maybe if you are under the care of an STD specialist. Ureaplasma is present in up to half of all people, so your test is likely to be positive, but usually it is harmless. If you have symptoms, a positive test would not mean Ureaplasma is the cause. Amoxicillin probably would not make the test falsely negative, but it is possible. ...Read more

Ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma hominis--causes of infertility?

Ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma hominis--causes of infertility?

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

Hi, I would like to know does ureaplasma parvum/ureaplasma ureaticum. Causes complications. What viruses linked to hiv or aids.

Ureaplasma: Chronic infection with this organism can produce changes in the urethra, just as with any other form of inflammation. The only virus linked to HIV/AIDS is HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). Many viruses may attack a compromised immune system in a patient with this illness. ...Read more

Can ureaplasma cause BV and does it show clue cells like BV under microscope dr said they don't treat so just treated BV scared ill get it back?

Potentially: Ureaplasma has been associated with resistant BV infections but usually is not treated per se. This is one organism that is looked for when working up women with recurrent miscarriage and infertility so it may be important in those situations. It does not show clue cells under the microscope. ...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

Could both me and husband have NSU? I have chronic BV (constant itchy/soreness-cause unknown with NO flora at all-ever approx 6 month). husband has prostatitis. STI test NEG. I had ureaplasma/mycroplasma test too - NEG. What is happening to us? Any ideas?

Probably no STD: Similar to your other question yesterday. I'm concerned you have not been seeing the right kind of doctors. Try to find a GUM specialist for both you and husband. BV doesn't catch itching, dryness, etc. NGU (same as NSU) is not a likely explanation for either of you. Maybe yeast? Impossible to have "no flora" in the vagina. All much too complex for a clear answer in any online forum. Sorry. ...Read more

Hi, I would like to know can ureaplasma urealyticum/parvum affect the body?

Not at all, usually: All 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) in men, but no health problems in women are known.

Hi, I suffer from reaplasma parvum biovar 1 and ureaplasma ureaticum biovar 2.What are biovars.

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

Vagina Posicles: Depending on what state you live (see:http://www. Cdc. Gov/std/ept/legal/default. Htm) a doctor can prescribe for the swexual partner of someone infected with an STD (it's called "expedited patient therapy, "EPT) and I bet even in some other states a doctor would do it for you. "That guy" needs to ask his doctor. Other than that, I've heard about "vagina popsicles, " (at jezebel. Com) ...Read more

I have Ureaplasma urealyticum. How do you know if you should treat it? I am showing no symptoms.

No treatment needed: Ureaplasma urealyticum is normal in the genital tract (at any time, up to 50% of all people have it). In absence of symptoms, no treatment is necessary (and there really is no point in even testing for it). UU is an occasional cause of nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), but chlamydia and other things cause most cases. NGU needs treatment but asymtomatic UU does not. ...Read more
