Mycoplasma Genitalium

Get mycoplasma genitalium medication with an online prescription

Mycoplasma genitalium is a bacterial sexually transmitted infection. As a newly discovered STI, it can be difficult to diagnose because it is very similar to gonorrhoea and chlamydia and can occur alongside other STIs. Many women who have had bacterial vaginosis may also have Mycoplasma genitalium later on. This infection is considered to be one of the main causes of non-specific urethritis in men. If left untreated, the infection can lead to cervicitis in women, and infertility and urethritis in both sexes.

Mycoplasma genitalium is easily treatable with a course of antibiotic treatment, such as Azithromycin or Doxycycline. You can buy these clinically proven medications online at euroClinix with a simple online consultation.

What is mycoplasma genitalium?

Mycoplasma genitalium, first identified in 1981, is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by an infection that goes by the same name and is normally passed on via unprotected sex. This condition can be difficult to diagnose because the signs that point towards this STI also point towards other STIs, such as gonorrhoea and chlamydia. There aren't any obvious symptoms for mycoplasma genitalium, which means that it's vital you seek treatment to cure this infection if your STI test results come back as positive.

What causes Mycoplasma genitalium?

Mycoplasma genitalium is transmitted through sexual contact. If you have unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex you are placing yourself at risk of contracting this infection, or any one of a number of other STIs. The smallest mycoplasmal organisms that cause this infection are passed on during sexual intercourse and go on to attach themselves to the genital tract surface, where they begin to attack the host's tissue.

Symptoms of mycoplasma genitalium

This is an asymptomatic infection, which means the vast majority of infected individuals will not display any visible mycoplasma genitalium symptoms. This makes it even more important to undertake a regular STI (STD) test to ensure you are not infected.

Male symptoms

If mycoplasma genitalium symptoms do occur, they will usually be in the form of urethritis, urethral discharge and pain during urination for men. An inflammation of the urethra is the most common visible symptom for men.

Female symptoms

Women may notice vaginal itching, pain during sex and pain while urinating. Symptoms can also include a burning sensation when urinating and bleeding after sex, as well as between periods.

What are the risks associated with this infection?

This infection can be dangerous because it is asymptomatic, and a person may not realise they are infected for some time. Untreated Mycoplasma genitalium can lead to serious long-term health complications, so it is important to undergo STI testing if you have had unprotected sex.

Men could experience epididymitis and prostatitis, while women are at risk of cervicitis, ectopic pregnancy, urethritis and pelvic inflammatory disease. Both women and men risk infertility and long-term pelvic pain.

Treating mycoplasma genitalium

The most effective treatment for Mycoplasma genitalium is a five-day course of Azithromycin antibiotics. For the medication to be most effective, you should take two 500mg tablets in a single dose treatment, by which the infection will take seven days to be fully treated.

We also offer Doxycycline antibiotics, which are taken twice a day for seven days in a 100mg dose. Whilst this is a fast-acting and effective treatment for mycoplasma genitalium, Azithromycin is deemed by medical professionals to be the preferred treatment for this condition.

Treating mycoplasma genitalium with prescription medication keeps you sexually clean and significantly reduces the chances of this infection spreading. Treating this STI correctly also ensures that you can treat the uncomfortable or painful symptoms associated with it, including pain whilst urinating and itchiness.

Preventing mycoplasma genitalium

There are a number of methods that you can follow to successfully prevent mycoplasma genitalium:

  • Use condoms (male or female) during sex
  • Get tested regularly for STIs, especially after completing a course of treatment, to ensure that the bacteria has completely cleared
  • Minimise the number of sexual partners you have to prevent the spread of this infectionM/li>
  • Avoid sharing sex toys with sexual partners, if you do, ensure that they are cleaned thoroughly and covered with a fresh condom
