Why should you get the Mycoplasma Ureaplasma Test?

Consider Vaginal or Penile Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma testing if you are experiencing symptoms or are:

  • Sexually active with a new partner
  • Sexually active with multiple partners
  • HIV positive

Ureaplasma and mycoplasma are two independent bacteria, but are often present as a dual infection. They are different infections but are often tested for together because they are frequently found together in the body. These organisms have similar side effects and cross-over symptoms like other STDs and are part of the spectrum of sexually transmitted organisms. Up to half of those infected with ureaplasma or mycoplasma display no symptoms, but if left untreated, they can cause long term complications, like chronic pelvic pain or infertility.

Until recently, ureaplasma and mycoplasma have been very difficult to detect. With improved testing processes and more people becoming aware of these bacteria, we now finally have a solution to help you detect and reduce the risk of transmission. Below is some additional information you may find helpful about these common, though relatively unknown, infections. You can also learn more details about the signs and symptoms of a mycoplasma/ureaplasma infection.

What should a woman know about a ureaplasma/mycoplasma infection?

It is critically important for women to know if they have either infection. If left untreated, ureaplasma can lead to infertility (inability to have a normal pregnancy) and mycoplasma can cause chronic pelvic pain. Complications may include:

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (severe inflammation of the uterus)
  • Increased risk of miscarriages or complications during pregnancy
  • Inflammation of the urethra (urethritis)
  • Kidney Infection and kidney stones

In one study done of 46 women seeking an initial infertility evaluation, 21% were positive for ureaplasma and 1.3% were positive for mycoplasma. If you are pregnant, testing for ureaplasma or mycoplasma is important as either can be transmitted to a baby at birth or in utero (in the womb).

What should a man know about a ureaplasma/mycoplasma infection?

Since ureaplasma and mycoplasma infections are more common in infertile couples, research is being done on the increased risk of male infertility.

In men, symptoms of ureaplasma and mycoplasma include:

  • Inflammation of the urethra (urethritis)
  • Kidney Infection and kidney stones

What happens if your test is positive for Ureaplasma or Mycoplasma?

Ureaplasma and mycoplasma are very common infections. They respond to antibiotics, but can be more challenging to treat than other infections or STDs. It is therefore advised that if you test positive,  you make an appointment with a healthcare provider immediately so you can start treatment right away.

Repeat infection is common and causes an even greater risk for potential long-term complications. The CDC therefore recommends that you retest 3 months post-treatment. A negative result establishes that your treatment was effective.

If you test positive, you should abstain from sexual activity until after treatment. You should also inform all current and past sexual partners about your results so they know to get tested as well.

You can find more information about Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma at the CDC website.
