Mycoplasma, also known as mycoplasma genitalium (Mgen or M. genitalium) is common sexually transmitted disease due to bacteria that is spread during sexual intercourse.

If left untreated, in men, mycoplasma genitalium can lead to urethritis (inflammation of the urethra) or epididymo-orchitis (inflammation of the epididymis and testicle).

In women, it can cause cervicitis (inflammation of the cervix) or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is also associated with infertility in women.

Failing to treat a mycoplasma genitalium infection significantly increases the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

Yes, there are several effective antibiotics available: doxycycline, azithromycin, and moxifloxacin. A course of treatment will typically involve one or more of these medications. If one type of antibiotic medicine for mycoplasma fails, it can be substituted with another. Your online doctor will explore your treatment options and prescribe antibiotics that are most suitable for you.
Although the symptoms are similar, these infections have different causes. A proper STI test should be able to determine which type of active infection you have. In some patients, both types of infections are present simultaneously.
Symptoms develop one to three weeks after exposure to M. genitalium bacteria. This applies only in cases where symptoms present themselves, however. Many people never develop symptoms.
Mycoplasma hominis (M. hominis) is another common species of mycoplasma. It has symptoms very similar to M. genitalium, such as pelvic inflammatory disease. However, it often causes no symptoms at all.
It’s a good idea for your sexual partner to get an online consultation, even if they are not displaying symptoms of a mycoplasma genitalium infection. If they test positive, a mycoplasma home treatment regimen can reduce the chances of future infections from sexual intercourse. However, your partner needs to be tested individually. Do not allow them to take antibiotics that have been prescribed for your own use.
Yes, this will prevent you from spreading M. genitalium to others. Your online doctor will advise you on when it is safe to resume normal sexual activity.
