Inflammation of the urethra and genitals, quite often cause mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas (pathogens belonging to the same family of bacteria). In women, they can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, and premature births. In men, they are able to join sperm and thereby prevent fertilization. The more active sexual life a person leads, the naturally more likely to become infected.
Symptoms and course:From the moment of infection to the appearance of signs, 1015 days pass. Men have mucosal discharge, itching, discomfort in the urethra, the lips of which are slightly swollen and inflamed. Sometimes sexual disorders join. Of the complications in men, inflammation of the prostate and epididymis is most common. There are aching pains, slight swelling and redness of the scrotum. The temperature usually does not rise. Often, patients do not feel anything and involuntarily infect their sexual partners.
In women, mycoplasmas affect the urethra, vagina, cervix and uterus, and the inner lining of the fallopian tubes. Patients complain of mucous, translucent discharge, itching in the labia and vagina. These bacteria can cause inflammation of the inner lining of the uterus, which leads to poor attachment of the fertilized egg and poor development of the embryo. At any level of the genital tract, they can have a detrimental effect on reproductive function. In childless women, mycoplasmas are often found.
