Facts about STD

The present study about STDs

There is a current study about STD and it has been sending bad news that people must be worried about. There is a new sexually transmitted infection nowadays and it is the Mycoplasma genitalium. Even if the experts have discovered the presence of MG since 1980s, the new journal has been published and that alone revealed the bacterial infection, which actually lives in the urinary tract, as well as in the genital tracts that may be transferred through a sexual intercourse.

To be able to stand firm in the findings, the researchers in a University in London, checked the samples of the urine of around 4,000 men in women ages 18-44 years of age who were sexually active with just a sole partner. Of all the participants, 48 women as well as 24 men were detected with MG, On the other hand, when the researchers have checked the samples of the urine coming from more than two hundred teens that never had a sexual encounter and had never been tested for the infection.

The signs to look out for

Just as with the other types of STDs, and after the STD Tests, the MG is usually asymptomatic, according to Dr. Dardik. The truth is that the University College London research has discovered that more than 94% of men as well as 56% of women with MG did not report any signs. On the other hand, there are just some tip offs.  Ladies may suffer from irritation, bleeding after an intercourse and pain while urinating. Men on the other hand, usually suffer from pain in urinating or there may be a watery discharge from the penis.

MG has been associated with inflammation in the cervix as well as inflammation in the pelvis. Both are serious conditions often brought about by the STDs such as gonorrhea as well as chlamydia according to Dr. Dardik and that is around 10% of the women who have developed a pelvic inflammatory disease which can lead to pain in the abdomen, pain in the cervix, pain and bleeding during and even after sex. All of these may be because of MG.

Can someone get tested for MG?

Yes, someone can consult a doctor and have them tested for MG, especially if the signs might be familiar. However, part of the reason the doctors are just now looking for something about MG is that it is spreadable through a sexual intercourse and that is not really as easy and simple as getting tested for chlamydia or for another type of STD. For what reason? Well, some laboratories offer the tests and they are situated in a faraway place that means that the doctor will just send it to the nearest research. Good thing there is good news and that is there are more laboratories that will embrace the chance to add the tests for STDs to their range.  There is nothing to worry about because MG can be treated with an antibiotic, particularly Azithromycin and this is a very effective antibiotic for those with STDs.
