Sexually transmitted infection or diseases are diseases that are passed on from one person to another through sexual contact.
There are many diseases such as gonorrhea, chlamydial infection, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, syphilis, genital warts, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B infection. There are many diseases such as gonorrhea, chlamydial infection, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, syphilis, genital warts, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B infection.Recently, a new disease has been added to the list called Mycoplasma genitalia.
Mycoplasma genitalium is linked with acute and chronic urethritis in men. Current data on infection in women are poor and variable but imply that M. genitalium is correlated with urethritis, cervicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and possibly female infertility.
So far, we know that the disease is an uncommon autoimmune disease that attacks the muscles in the body and that it is caused by micro-organisms that are similar do bacteria, that develop in the urethra and reproductive system. We say that because due to the insufficient evidence and research the information about it are limited.
Mycoplasma knowledge really relates to a group of bacteria that carry over 70 different species, yet just a few of them are present in human body harmlessly discovered to cause diseases and infections in people.
Research on Mycoplasma genitalium
A professor from University of Washington in Seatle, Lisa Manhart remarks that at first, the scientists weren’t able to study this disease due to the proper test that it’s needed to do so. Later, in 1990 they made the right test and it was concluded that the people who were M. genitalium positive usually had relations with partners who were already infected with the disease.
The new study adds to the evidence that M. genitalium is a STD, because it found that the infection was more common in people who have had at least four new partners in the last year than in people who have had one or a small number of new partners in the last year of the day. According to a study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, people are likely to have M. genitalium if they had unprotected sex.
Infection with M. genitalium sometimes produces clinical symptom, or a combination of symptoms, but sometimes can be asymptomatic. It causes inflammation in the urethra (urethritis) both in men and women, which is associated with mucopurulent discharge in the urinary tract, and burning while urinating.
