Just so, why do I keep getting Ureaplasma?
Ureaplasma bacteria have been found in both men and women with infertility problems. A genital tract infection may cause up to 15 percent of all cases of male infertility, but not all of these are due to Ureaplasma. Many of them are a result of sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea.
One may also ask, can a man give a woman Ureaplasma? Ureaplasma urealyticum is a very common infection that is mainly spread via sexual contact, however, it isn't classified as an STI but a bacterial infection. Ureaplasma is often characterised as urethritis in men and genital tract infections in women.
Likewise, people ask, what happens if you leave Ureaplasma untreated?
If left untreated, ureaplasma can be associated with infertility, non-specific urethritis, meningitis and pneumonia. If ureaplasma has been left untreated for several months, it can spread to other parts of your body and damage your joints, nerves and muscles.
Do both partners need to be treated for Ureaplasma?
When ureaplasma is detected in the reproductive secretions of either partner, both should be treated concurrently with the appropriate antibiotic (doxycycline, zithromax, erythromycin, ciprofloxin, or metranidazole). In such cases, ciprofloxin or metronidazole (Flagyl) therapy might be needed.
