What indicators Mycoplasma are the norm

Mycoplasma is a potentially pathogenic microorganism. Normal its titer is not more than 10 000 units ml. 1 Diagnosis is carried out by seeding of biological material on a nutrient medium with subsequent isolation of pathogenic titer. This method cannot provide a 100% diagnosis. Additionally, it is necessary to use the method of ELISA to detect antibodies:

  • IgA;
  • IgM;
  • IgG.

This will give you the opportunity to shape the development of pathogenic microorganisms.

The prevalence of Mycoplasma hominis

Excess of the titer of pathogenic microorganisms observed in 60% of infected. 30% of them noted a sharp increase in antibody titers. This suggests that Mycoplasma is often the primary cause of inflammation of the urogenital system.

The rate of titer in women

The opinions of experts about the normal titer in human blood differ. However, upon detection of 50 000-100 000 units per 1 ml should definitely seek qualified help.

For prevention you should know the way of its transmission:

  1. Sex. In this case, the man is only a carrier of the infection and passes it to the woman, often without knowing it.
  2. Transplacental – from a pregnant woman to the child.
  3. The blood transfusion.

In this aspect, there are misconceptions:

  • a woman may be infected at a reception at the gynecologist (through the tool);
  • you can get it from animals.

Most experts do not consider the infection to the venereal class. These studies show the presence of titer of microorganisms in the normal range, 30-55% of absolutely healthy women, living sexual life.

You also need to know the symptoms:
  1. cramps or burning sensation when urinating;
  2. frequent urge to urinate;
  3. itching of external genitals;
  1. spotting with a yellow tinge;
  2. pain during sexual intercourse;
  3. of bleeding during or after intercourse.

In the period of acute infection may be other symptoms are:

  • nausea;
  • vomiting;
  • fever;
  • General malaise.

Tests to identify infection

Women usually take a scraping from the walls of the vagina or a urine sample. Much less a biomaterial is taken from the throat or nasopharynx (it depends on the localization of the pathological process).

Men pass to the analysis of urine or semen. The infection can also be detected in cerebrospinal and synovial fluid.

Before collecting the scraping, the patient is recommended to stop taking drugs and give up personal hygiene with the bactericidal action of at leastthree days. When taking material from the urethra to refrain from urinating at least 2 hours before your appointment.

Reduction of the titer of the mycoplasmas to the norm After the detection of high titers of Mycoplasma, an additional diagnosis and is assigned a specific treatment.

Due to the fact that Mycoplasma are often found in parallel with other diseases of the genitourinary tract, treatment is purely individual.

The woman must remember that her sex partner is a carrier of the infection. It also needs to be examined and treated to eliminate the pathogen and prevent re-infection.
