I live in Eastern Europe and was diagnosed with ureaplasma. I am very confused. From what the doctors here say it is important to cure and can lead to pregnancy complications if either partner has it. But searching on the internet seems to find compeltely mixed messages. I am getting the impressionthat western medicine for the most part doesn't get concerned about this. What is the real story??? Is it important to be sure both partners are free of ureaplasma before conceiving? We want to have a child, but can't seem to get a clear answer on this situation.
I had to do a little research before trying to answer the questions since I never heard fo your condition. This is what I found:
Ureaplasma: A bacterium that commonly infects the urogenital tract and can cause premature birth or spontaneous abortion. During delivery, ureaplasma can infect the newborn and cause meningitis, pneumonia, or septicemia.
Ureaplasma is similar to mycoplasma. They are among the smallest free-living organisms known. Ureaplasma lacks several proteins standard in comparable organisms. Its low biosynthetic capacity means that it must import more nutrients needed for growth that most other bacteria.
Personally, reguardless of the mixed info you might be finding I would get the issues resolved anyways. Either way you look at it it cannot be healthy to have this type of "infection".
