Infections from bacteria like Mycoplasma pneumoniae or Mycoplasma genitalium can spread through respiratory droplets or sexual contact. Factors increasing the risk include close proximity to infected individuals, unprotected sex, multiple sexual partners, and compromised immunity. Regular testing and safe practices are key to mitigating infection spread. Causes include:

  • Contact with droplets from the nose and throat of infected individuals.
  • Unsafe intercourse.
  • Transmission from an infected mother to her baby during childbirth.
  • Having multiple sexual partners.

When should I get tested?

You may consider mycoplasma testing when you have the symptoms such as – genital discomfort, respiratory issues or plan to have a new sex partner, engage in unsafe sex or suffer from complications at the time of pregnancy. Routine STI screenings, particularly when a partner has been diagnosed may lead to overall maintenance of your sexual health.


Symptoms in women include:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Lower pelvic pain
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Bleeding after intercourse

Symptoms in men include:

  • Pain during urination
  • Penile irritation and pain
  • Discharge from the urethra

What does the test include?

Testing methods differ for men and women. For women, a urine sample or vaginal swab is taken. For men, a urine test is usually sufficient, but a swab of penile discharge may be taken if it's a primary symptom.

How long is the waiting period before getting tested for mycoplasma?

It is recommended to wait for at least 5 days after sexual contact before getting tested for Mycoplasma. However, if you experience symptoms or if your partner has tested positive, it is advisable to get tested as soon as possible.

What happens if you do not treat Mycoplasma on time?

If Mycoplasma is not treated on time, it can lead to serious health problems. These include infertility in women, swelling of the scrotum in men, and vaginal bleeding. Mycoplasma genitalium is classified as a "fastidious" bacterium, meaning it grows slowly and requires very specific conditions to thrive in a laboratory setting. This characteristic can make diagnosis and treatment more challenging.
