This microorganism occupies an intermediate position in the medical classification between viruses, bacteria and fungi. It exists due to parasitization in the macroorganism. From it mycoplasma hominis receives all the substances necessary for its vital activity and reproduction.
Methods of infection with mycoplasma hominis
To date, there are 4 main ways of transferring this microorganism from person to person: sexual, intranatal, intrauterine and contact-household. The greatest epidemiological significance of these is the sexual path. Intrauterine and intranatal transmission routes imply the penetration of the microorganism from mother to child during pregnancy or childbirth. As for the contact-household method, it is carried out with the help of various items of common use. Because of so many different ways of transmission of mycoplasma, hominis is very widespread. Especially characteristic is its availability for those who lead a promiscuous sex life. In addition, enough often occurs myco
Symptoms of infection with mycoplasma hominis
This microorganism is present in many people, but far from each of them it causes the development of the disease. Most often this happens when a person's immunity decreases. It should be noted that the disease caused by mycoplasma hominis, manifests a fairly broad clinical picture. It should be noted that the most vivid symptoms can be found in women. They have mycoplasma hominis causing itching in the external genital area, intermenstrual secretions of brown leucorrhea or blood, and painful sensations at the end or middle of the menstrual period. As for men, they often have this disease manifested only a slight itch or even completely asymptomatic. In the event that the patient has a reduced immunity observed long enough, it is possible to parallel the development of other infectious diseases.
Diagnosis of mycoplasma hominis
Detection of a small microorganism, such as mycoplasma hominis, before the advent of modern techniques was significantly hampered, since in ordinary microscopy it can not be identified. In this case, the disease that develops as a result of its penetration, does not have any specific symptoms, uncharacteristic for other diseases. To date, mycoplasma hominis is most often detected by polymerase chain reaction, as well as by immunofluorescence.
Treatment of mycoplasma hominis
The rationale for the destruction of this microorganism is rational antibiotic therapy. In this case, first prescribe drugs of a wide spectrum of action, and then patients are offered exactly the means to which the mycoplasma hominis is most sensitive. Treatment at the same time is better supplemented with homeopathic preparations. This is due to the fact that with the therapy of mycoplasma hominitis antibiotics alone in 10% of cases it is not possible to achieve a full eradication of this microorganism.
