What is Mycoplasma Genitalium?
Mycoplasma Genitalium is a bacterium that is sexually transmitted. Mycoplasmas are tiny bacteria that are an increasingly common cause of urethritis. As this bacterium is not tested for on the NHS, a large number of infections caused by Mycoplasma Genitalium are categorised as non-specific urethritis or NSU for short. Although the infection has shown some antibiotic resistance, it is normally easy to treat. We recommend treatment in the case of all positive results, even if you do not have any obvious symptoms.
Symptoms of Mycoplasma Genitalium
Sometimes there are absolutely no symptoms of this infection but the following have been observed:
- Stinging or burning sensation when passing urine
- Discharge from the penile urethra
- Unusual discharge from the vagina
- Women sometimes experience pain in the pelvic area and bleeding during intercourse.
Symptoms normally present within 1 - 3 weeks of acquiring the infection.
Getting tested for Mycoplasma Genitalium
Mycoplasma Genitalium needs to be tested using PCR technology as the bacteria does not culture well. You can buy tests online from The STI Clinic
Antibiotic Treatment for Mycoplasma
There is evidence that a single dose of 1000 mg Azithromycin has a higher than acceptable failure rate and that this dosage and regimen allows resistance to develop. A 5 day course of Azithromycin is preferable in our view and has a good success rate. If Azithromycin is not appropriate then a 7 - 14 day course of Doxycycline 100 mg twice daily is a good alternative.
