What is Mycoplasma genitalium? Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma genitalium are the human-related mycoplasma. Mycoplasma pneumoniae mainly infects the respiratory system.
Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma genitalis mainly infect the urogenital system. They are all separated from the urinary tract and can be called Mycoplasma genitalis.
Mycoplasma urealyticum (M.U) and Mycoplasma hominis (M.H) are well known for their high isolation rate and their association with urogenital diseases. The isolation rate of Mycoplasma genitalium is low, and it is not noticeable in pathogens.
Since Mycoplasma genitalium was successfully isolated from urethral secretions of patients with non-gonococcal urethritis for the first time in 1981, Mycoplasma genitalium has really entered the field of vision of medical experts.
And, in 1993, Horner P.J. confirmed that genital mycoplasma can cause non-gonococcal urethritis in men. Mycoplasma genitalium is a potential pathogen of human genitourinary tract infection and one of the important causes of human genitourinary tract infection.
The infection of Mycoplasma genitalium can cause urethritis, prostatitis and epididymitis in men. The main symptoms are stinging pain of the urethra, urgency, frequency and pain of the urination, mild redness of the urethral orifice, a small amount of serous or purulent secretion, or a small amount of viscous secretion sealing at the urethral orifice in the morning.
Mycoplasma genitalium also continues to infect seminal tract, seminal vesicle and testis, affecting the quality of sperm and semen and causing infertility.
1. Disturbance of sperm motility: Sperm motility is an important function of healthy sperm and an important indicator of whether sperm can conceive, and sperm motility must have a certain speed and frequency.
Mycoplasma often attaches to the head and tail of sperm after infection, which makes the whole sperm full of attachments of different sizes, resulting in inability of sperm to swim and entangle with each other, leading to male infertility.
2. Increased rate of sperm malformation: Mycoplasma infection leads to increased rate of sperm malformation is another feature of infertility. According to clinical observation, sperm malformation rate can sometimes reach up to 80% in such infertile patients.
3. Destruction of spermatogenic cells: Spermatogenic factories produce fake and inferior products, leading to infertility.
As Mycoplasma genitalium infection can cause male infertility, it is particularly important in the treatment.
At present, tetracyclines, macrolides and quinolones are the main drugs for the treatment of Mycoplasma genitalium. Although these drugs can be used to treat genital mycoplasma infection, they are not targeted. And large doses and long-term medication can easily lead to drug resistance of genital mycoplasma, thus reducing the efficacy and causing recurrence.
So patients may choose natural therapy Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, a herbal medicine with unique curative effect in treating male genital mycoplasma infection. This formula is mainly aimed at male reproductive system diseases.
