Mycoplasma genitalium (genital) diagnosis and management

Last updated: February 2018

Mycoplasma genitalium has been associated with urethritis in men, and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease in women.

This organism has developed resistance to multiple antibiotics. Treatment options are very limited.

Screening asymptomatic patients for Mycoplasma genitalium is NOT recommended.

We recommend referring to the Australian STI Management Guidelines when dealing with patients.
