Treatment of mycoplasmosis in “DoctorPRO” in Cherkasy
The causative agents of this infectious disease are mycoplasmas – microorganisms parasitizing in the human body and affecting the organs of the genitourinary system. In everyday life, they present in human and animal organisms, as well as on plants and have a potentially pathogenic character (that is, they start to be harmful only under the influence of special factors).
Infection with mycoplasmas is possible in two ways: during sexual intercourse or from mother to a child at the time of delivery. The transmission of mycoplasma through non-sexual contact has no scientific confirmation.
The causes of mycoplasmosis are as follows:
- unprotected sexual intercourse;
- decrease in immunity;
- deterioration of the microflora of the genital organs.
Often the first stages of the disease are asymptomatic, and patients do not notice any sharp deterioration in health. The reasons for visiting the doctor are such symptoms of mycoplasmosis as:
- soreness and itching when urinating;
- discomfort during sexual intercourse;
- cutting pains in the lower abdomen;
- secretion from the genitals with an unpleasant odor;
- inflammatory processes in the organs of the genitourinary system.
Any of the above signs signals that an urgent appeal to a specialist is necessary.
The medical center “DoctorPRO” in Cherkassy provides services for conducting preventive examinations and consultations, during which the doctor will perform a visual examination, history taking and prescribe the necessary tests. Diagnosis of mycoplasmosis involves the delivery of laboratory tests for the detection of mycoplasmas (PCR and culture swab test). Since mycoplasmas often exist “in the company” of other microorganisms, it is also recommended to perform tests to other types of pathogens (ureaplasmas, chlamydia, trichomonads).
Later detection of the disease can lead to complications of mycoplasmosis, such as: disfunction of reproductive organs in both sexes, decreased potency in men, concomitant pathologies in pregnancy (preterm delivery, spontaneous termination of pregnancy, and risk of intrauterine infection of the child).
An integral component of effective therapy of mycoplasmosis is its prevention. It consists of the following measures:
- regular preventive examinations;
- use of barrier contraceptives;
- in case the disease is found in one of the partners, the second one should also undergo a course of therapy.
The choice of treatment depends on the test results, the presence of concomitant diseases, individual drug tolerance. Usually, the antibiotic therapy, anti-inflammatory, immunocorrecting medications are prescribed, aimed at destroying the pathogen and restoring the body’s defenses.
