English: Mycoplasma is a bacterium transmitted mainly through unprotected sex where mucous membranes and body fluids are involved. A lot of people don’t know that they have mycoplasma because of the lack of symptoms. But some people experience pain when peeing, itching, strange vaginal discharge and/or menstrual spotting. Mycoplasma is not a part of the Communicable Diseases Act, therefore it is not free to tested and treated for it. Mycoplasma is most commonly treated with antibiotics.
