Mycoplasma Genitalium Information

What is Mycoplasma Genitalium?

Mycoplasma Genitalium is a bacterium that can be transmitted through unprotected sexual activity. It affects both sexes, although the NHS does not have a screening programme for it. Frequently this bacterium causes urethritis, characterised by inflammation and pain when passing urine. It can also cause urethral and vaginal discharge.

Is there a test available for Mycoplasma Genitalium?

The GUM Clinic can give you a simple to use urine or swab test, which will show whether you have the infection. This test seeks out the DNA of Mycoplasma Genitalium in the sample that you provide and the test is very accurate.

Is testing necessary?

If you think you have the symptoms of a genital infection then we suggest a full STI screen, which will enable us to identify the cause of your symptoms. We only recommend a single test for Mycoplasma Genitalium when all other possibilities have been eliminated or if you wish to check that a previously identified infection has cleared.

How do we treat Mycoplasma Genitalium?

It is normally very straightforward to treat this infection. Once we have established that this is the infection, we will prescribe you with a course of antibiotics. In most cases this will be Azithromycin.
