Product information

The Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma treatment pack contains two antibiotics. Doxycycline is a tetracycline medicine, whereas Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic medicine. Both are generic tablets used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. Among these are Mycoplasma genitalium (Mgen) and Ureaplasma urealycitum (UU).

When used to treat Mycoplasma genitalium and ureaplasma, Doxycycline is taken for seven days (1 x 100mg tablet daily), then Azithromycin is taken for 3 days (2 x 500mg tablets on day 8 and 1 x 500mg tablet on days 9 and 10).

What are Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma?

Mycoplasma genitalium (Mgen) and ureaplasma urealycitum (UU) are pathogenic bacteria which can cause infections in the urethral and reproductive tract. They can often be present in addition to other infection-causing bacteria. For instance, Mycoplasma might be found in conjunction with chlamydia when someone has an infection.

Both infections are often asymptomatic, so can be present without being noticed. They both grow very slowly and belong to the family of smallest organisms that are currently known, which can make them difficult to identify and diagnose.

Mycoplasma genitalium and ureaplasma can cause nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). This is characterised by various symptoms, such as:

  • discharge from the penis in men, or from the vagina in women
  • pain during or after sex (and vaginal bleeding after sex in women)
  • swelling of the vagina
  • pain during urination
  • and pain in pelvis.

The presence of these bacteria can also increase the risk of HIV transmission.

How are they transmitted?

Mycoplasma and ureaplasma are most commonly transmitted through vaginal sex, but can be passed on via oral and anal sex as well. There are no reliable figures available on transmission rates. Even so, the infections are thought to be highly contagious (although not to the same extent as chlamydia).

How are Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma infections diagnosed?

Both infections can be detected through a urine test. In women, they may show up on a swab test. It is important to get tested if you think you have an infection caused by Mgen or UU. Because such an infection may not always cause symptoms, you should also get checked if you have a sexual partner who has developed symptoms, or if they have had a positive test result.

Regular testing (once a year or more) is generally recommended for people who are sexually active with more than one person.

Testing services are available at GUM clinics, and some GP surgeries. You can also buy an STI test kit online from our site, which tests for Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma, as well as chlamydia and gonorrhoea.

It’s unclear at present whether someone carrying the bacteria but who is asymptomatic will necessarily require treatment. However, where the bacteria is present and causing symptoms, or in people where the bacteria could pose a risk (such as in couples trying to conceive) treatment is likely to be recommended.

There is no universally agreed first-line treatment for Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma at the moment. Both bacteria have shown resistant qualities to some antibiotics.

However, the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) recently released guidance recommended a course of Doxycycline followed up by Azithromycin to treat uncomplicated cases of Mycoplasma genitalium.

How do Doxycycline and Azithromycin work?

The drugs stop the bacteria responsible for the infection generating an enzyme which it needs to grow and sustain itself. Once the infection can no longer spread, the immune system kills off the bacteria.
