Unmasking Mycoplasma Genitalium


Ever Heard, of This Lesser-Known STI Huh?

In the vast sea of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), some big ones like HIV and herpes, well they get all the limelight. But, what about the small fries? Enter Mycoplasma genitalium. Sounds familiar? Maybe not. Let's dive into, Mgen or MG as folks call it.

Mycoplasma Genitalium:

The Silent... Uh, Bug?

Mycoplasma genitalium, it's like that quiet guy in a party there but not quite. A survey by LloydsPharmacy Online Doctor, well it was shocking. 85% of British adults, they don't know it. But twist: over half a million Brits got it.

The Signs and, Uh Stuff:

What's Up?

Mgen, it's sneaky. A bacterium that's in the urinary and genital places of men and women. It comes through, you know, intimate times. Vaginal or the other one. And sometimes, even if you're not all in. The thing? Most don't know they got it. But if it shows, it's like chlamydia. Men? Burn, goo, itch, and pain in the, well balls. Women? Unexpected stuff in underwear, pain inside, bedroom issues, blood after fun, and surprise periods.

Checking and, Well Fixing:

Dr. Neel Patel, a GP at LloydsPharmacy Online Doctor, he's onto Mgen. It hides, so check often. Worried? STI clinic or GP. They might not test for Mgen, but if you tell or show, they will. Swab or pee test.

Got it? Pills, the antibiotic ones. But, thing: might need more, different ones. Done? Wait two weeks. No fun. Why risk?

Staying Away: Not Hard, Right?

Avoid Mgen? Easy. Dr. Patel says, few partners, protection. Smoking? Quit. Avoid Mgen and other bad ones.
