Mycoplasma Infection: What You Need to Know
What Causes Mycoplasma Infection?
Mycoplasma infections are caused by bacteria. In fact, Mycoplasma are the smallest known free-living microorganisms. They are found in humans, animals, insects, plants, soil, and sewage.
Mycoplasma do not have a cell wall around their cell membranes. This means that antibiotics that attach bacterial cell walls are not effective against mycoplasma. However, other antibiotics are effective against Mycoplasma. There are five major types of Mycoplasma species that cause diseases in humans:
- Mycoplasma pneumoniae causes lung infections
- Mycoplasma genitalium is a sexually transmitted infection that causes inflammation
- Mycoplasma hominis lives in the urogenital tract, often without producing symptoms
- Ureaplasma urealyticum can spread through sex and from a mother to her unborn child
- Ureaplasma parvum is present in many healthy women and men without symptoms
What Does Mycoplasma Hominis Cause? What Does Mycoplasma Genitalium Cause?
Mycoplasma hominis is a species of bacteria that lives in the urogenital tract of about 50 percent of women, and to a lesser extent, men. Most people who are in good general health do not develop any symptoms from M. hominis. However, if a person’s immune system is weak, Mycoplasma hominis can cause an infection with symptoms including urethritis in men and urethritis and cervicitis in women. Typically, there is no need for treatment of mycoplasma hominis in patients without symptoms.
Mycoplasma genitalium is a common sexually transmitted infection that causes significant problems in men and women that include non-gonoccocal urethritis (NGU), burning in the urethra, pelvic pain, infertility, and other symptoms caused by inflammation of the urinary and genital tracts.
