Causative agents of mycho- and ureaplasmosis are mychoplasmas, which are intermediate among bacteria, viruses and protozoa and have no permanent cellular walls.

Since mychoplasmas can be found on the mucosa of the genitals, throat and oral cavity not only in sick people, but also in healthy ones, they can be considered to be opportunistic agents contributing to the development of the inflammatory urogenital diseases only in case of decreased immunity and stress.

The primary mode of the disease transmission is sexual activity. The longer urogenital urethritis lasts, the more likely the development of mycho- and ur eaplasmosis. The infection usually penetrates through the genitourinary mucosa.

Incubation (latent) period lasts 3-20 days. Mychoplasmas can be transmitted from a sick mother to a fetus and to a newborn during the delivery process.

There are no specific signs of the disease. In men, the infection can be both manifested and almost asymptomatic, with a dimmed mucous drop from the urethra in the morning, slight discomfort during urination, sometimes burning. The disease can lead to the inflammatory processes in testicles, prostate, and seminal vesicles. In women, this infection can cause tubal and ovarian inflammation, cystitis, pyelonephritis and other severe diseases. It can also result in female and male infertility (due to a direct effect of the causative agent on the sperm motility).

The treatment of mycho- and ureaplasmosis depends on the duration of the disease, as well as on the presence of concomitant infections, and should be provided simultaneously to both of the spouses or sexual partners.

There is no immunity to this disease. Therefore, repeated infection is possible.

Remember! There are no folk remedies to treat this infection. You should seek medical advice only at specialized medical establishments!
