What is Ureaplasma?

Ureaplasma is the smallest bacterium known to man. There are two species of Ureaplasma (Urealyticum and Parvum) and both have been implicated in sexual health complications. Research into Ureaplasma is still not very far advanced so the jury is still out on whether or not the presence of these bacteria can cause long term issues. As we have seen patients who have developed complications with untreated Ureaplasma, we apply the precautionary principle and treat on presentation.

What are the symptoms of Ureaplasma?

Many people with Ureaplasma are often asymptomatic (i.e. they do not have symptoms) but some go on to develop symptoms later. When symptoms are present they can include: pain while passing urine; pelvic pain; urethral discharge in men; and vaginal discharge in women. Ureaplasma bacteria have been implicated in pre-term births but further research is required to determine whether the presence of Ureaplasma in the amniotic fluid was the cause, a factor or a red herring.

What are the treatments for Ureaplasma?

Either Doxycycline or Azithromycin is prescribed to treat Ureaplasma. These antibiotics can be prescribed online by The Online Clinic if you have tested positive for Ureaplasma. Please do not guess that you might have Ureaplasma as you will not be able to determine this from your symptoms - a test is necessary.

How do I get tested for Ureaplasma?

If you have not had a test then you can get one online from The STI Clinic.

You can get tested for Ureaplasma using either a vaginal swab or a urine sample. It is not possible to culture Ureaplasma so the testing is done by PCR: an extremely accurate method of testing that looks for the DNA of organisms. Most Ureaplasma results with The STI Clinic are back within 48 hours.

If you just need to get treatment then please complete a free online consultation so that we can prescribe an appropriate antibiotic.
