I respect the opinions of the STD experts but I have some, I believe, legitimate concerns about the potential of Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma hominis to cause symptoms and disease. I practice pediatric and
adolescent GYN and
reproductive endocrinology and
appreciated about 9 years ago that patients were having various symptoms and signs which could not be explained by the usual microbiological testing (i.e., GC, Chlamydia and genital and anaerobic vaginal/cervical testing).
