Which is More Difficult to Treat: Mycoplasma Infection in Men Or One in Women?
Mycoplasma is a relatively common pathogenic microorganism that can cause many diseases. Mycoplasma infections in men and women have different causes and can cause different symptoms and diseases.
So, which is more difficult to treat, mycoplasma infections in men or women? To figure this out, we need to look at the causes and symptoms separately.
3 Causes of Mycoplasma infection in Men:
It is mostly due to sexual impurity. Mycoplasma infection may result from the patient having had sexual intercourse with more than one person or having bad sexual habits.
2. Men who have had sexual contact with Mycoplasma infections are also susceptible to infection, especially those with urethritis, which is more likely to occur at this time.
3. Bacteria in mycoplasma can be transmitted through hands, eyes, towels, clothing, baths, commodes, and swimming pools. Therefore, men may also be accidentally infected in public places.
3 Causes of Mycoplasma infection in Women:
1. Mostly due to sexual impurity or bad sexual habits.
2. The female urethra is short, straight, and wide; the urethral sphincter is weak, and the urethral opening is large; bacteria easily invade the bladder upward. Women's bladder emptying ability is not as good as men's, with more residual urine. The urine stays in the bladder for too long, which is conducive to bacterial growth.
3. Gynecological inflammatory diseases such as vaginitis, cervicitis, and pelvic inflammatory disease, its bacteria can be through the lymphatic route or secretion contamination of the urethra, causing urinary tract infections. Due to vaginal and uterine trauma, infection, lowered systemic resistance, prolonged labor, obstructed labor, and other factors, postpartum can also cause urinary tract infections.
How do their symptoms differ?
Symptoms of mycoplasma infection in men: after infection, patients may experience symptoms of urethritis and may develop other secondary infections of the genitourinary tract. Symptoms in patients may include pain in the urethra, urination difficulty, urine discharge, and redness around the urethra.
In severe cases, mycoplasma continues to infect the prostate, seminal tract, seminal vesicles, and testicles, which may lead to diseases such as prostatitis, epididymitis, seminal vesiculitis, and orchitis. It may also affect the quality of sperm and semen, causing problems such as infertility. These diseases seriously impact men's physical and reproductive health, which should be treated promptly.
Symptoms of mycoplasma infection in women: After infection, the symptoms may include increased vaginal discharge, vaginal itching, redness and swelling of the cervix, pain and discomfort in the abdomen.
Mycoplasma will first invade women's cervical epithelial cells and then upward to infect women's reproductive system, inducing cervicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, tubal inflammation, endometritis, and other diseases. It will also lead to an increase in the probability of female infertility.
Now, let's answer that question from the beginning: which is harder to treat, male or female mycoplasma infections?
Mycoplasma infections are prone to recurring episodes and can easily lead to cross-infection, which is challenging to treat.
For men, if the infection leads to prostatitis and epididymitis due to the specific anatomical location of the prostate gland and epididymis, it may be difficult for antibiotics to penetrate the inflammation area, thus leading to poor treatment effects.
At this time, the patient can choose to take the traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill; its herbal ingredients can penetrate the prostate membrane, the efficacy of the medicine directly to the lesion, from the root to eliminate the inflammation, to restore the normal function of the prostate.
In women, mycoplasma infections usually co-exist with other sexually transmitted diseases. For example, a woman may simultaneously be infected with several pathogens, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia. In this case, patients may choose to take the traditional Chinese medicine Fuyan Pill, which eliminates lesions in gynecological tissues, helps eliminate inflammatory infections in the reproductive tract, and cleanses the uterus of toxins, increasing the chances of natural conception.
To summarize, the causes and symptoms of mycoplasma infection are different in men and women, and the treatment difficulty is also different. Regardless of gender, patients should always pay attention to their body changes, regular sex life, and personal hygiene. Effective prevention and timely treatment are effective measures to reduce treatment difficulty.
