Ureaplasma Infection occurs through sexual contact
with its carrier or sick. It is also possible to intrauterine infection of the way when
infection transmitted from mother to child through amniotic fluid, or
delivery process. The incubation period is 2-4 weeks ureaplasmosis. at
This onset of the disease is most often asymptomatic, and at this time
ureaplasmas carrier can infect the other partner without even knowing about
it. In this insidious disease and which can be for human
the body is quite serious consequences.
First of all - is the inflammatory processes that
ureaplasma may cause in all parts of the genitourinary system. At the same time, without
appropriate treatment, the disease can become chronic and become
cause of prostatitis, vaginitis, endometritis, cystitis, pyelonephritis,
vesiculitis, inflammation of the uterus, the formation of adhesions in the fallopian tubes.
More experts agree that this kind of male infertility as a
asthenospermia at which the sperm motility reduction,
also caused by this microorganism. Studies have shown that
ureaplasma parasite on sperm and such contact leads to a loss
recent viability and motility. Also, this pathogen can be
directly related to the disease such as arthritis, causing inflammation of the joints.
In order to identify more appropriate to use ureaplasmas
more accurate diagnostic methods - PCR (polymerase chain reaction), ELISA
(Enzyme immunoassay) and bacterial seeding as of total
smear can give false, blurry picture. bacterial seeding method
which is to monitor the growth of a culture on nutrient media,
It can not only accurately detect the presence of infection, but also to determine how
it is sensitive to some antibiotics, which plays an important role in
the choice of drugs to treat the disease.
Risk factors for ureaplasmosis
- sex without a condom;
- early onset of sexual activity;
- a large number of sexual partners;
- gynecological diseases with a history of, or
diseases, sexually transmitted diseases;
- age group up to 30 years.
Availability ureaplasmosis men may appear at the end of
the incubation period, the emergence of symptoms of urethritis: allocation of
urethra in the morning, burning sensation when urinating, increased
fever, general deterioration, balanoposthitis (white education
plaque on the penis). If urethritis is sluggish
nature, as well as persistent relapses,
in which the allocation appear and disappear spontaneously, it may
lead to inflammation of the epididymis and testis.
The woman appears ureaplasmosis vaginal discharge,
frequent and painful urination, lower abdominal pain may be.
All of these symptoms may occur after a fairly long
after onset. This depends on the state to a greater extent
immune system. In medical practice there were cases when due
low pathogenicity ureaplasmas or due to the good resilience
the body, the agent did not show itself for a long time. In such cases,
more important are scheduled regular check-ups, in which
carried out the necessary tests that identify pathogens
characteristic even without symptoms.
It is important to understand that doing
self-detection of pathogenic micro-organisms is unacceptable, since
This leads to an increase in their resistance to certain drugs, which in its
turn, complicate the healing process in the future.
Based on the test results the doctor prescribes
ureaplasmosis appropriate treatment: antibacterial therapy, preparations for
raising immunity, local microbicides, physiotherapy, men
can be assigned to massage the prostate gland. Treatment is carried out at the same time
both partners, while test samples are taken as before treatment
and some time afterwards. At the time of treatment must be
diet, give up alcohol and to refrain from sexual activity.
