What is Ureaplasma urealyticum?

Ureaplasma urealyticum is caused by a bacterium and commonly occurs in people who are sexually active. It often does not cause any symptoms and therefore most people don’t know that they’re infected. The most common symptom is urethritis (inflammation of the urethra). If left untreated it may cause long term health problems.

It can be detected by our 7 in 1 test kit for men or women.

What is the treatment?

There is a choice of two treatments. Either a single dose of azithromycin or a week long course of doxycycline.

Azithromycin is a  simple one dose treatment that will eliminate the infection. It's very convenient and if taken with food is less likely to cause any unpleasant side-effects like nausea. It’s the treatment of choice if you’re allergic to Tetracyclines.

Doxycycline is just as effective but has to be taken for 7 days. It's less likely to cause side-effects and it’s an alternative if you’re allergic to Azithromycin, Erythromycin or Clarithromycin.
