ITS are very serious conditions that many people take very lightly, but can leave behind some lifelong consequences. They can even lead to infertility in men and women if not treated properly and if you do not react in time.
The biggest problem of STIs is that many people do not even know they have it and unknowingly transfer their sexual partners, which is then transferred and so on in an endless cycle. Experts have begun to warn people that there is a new ITS spreading around the world quickly, which can have very serious consequences. Dozens of people have been infected and the number of cases is steadily increasing.
The STI we are talking about is Mycoplasma, and the problem is that even many doctors have not heard of him yet. Mycoplasma is very difficult to detect and most people do not even know they have it because they can not identify the symptoms.
Here are some of the symptoms of this STI recently spread:
– smelly discharge from the penis
– vaginal bleeding
-. testicular pain and pain in the wider genital area, especially during sex
Symptoms aside, this STI have a serious and lasting impact on our health and in some cases can lead to serious ectopic pregnancy and infertility. Women are more likely than men to these long-term consequences because men seem more resistant to its effects.
Doctors do not have much information on mycoplasma although it is becoming more and more frequent. What is known for sure is that it is caused by specific microorganisms and bacteria that is common to appear on the reproductive system.
This specific type of bacteria called mycoplasma Mycoplasma genitalium and can be found in both men and women. It was first discovered eight years ago and according to some statistical information STI caused by this bacterium is spreading so fast that it has become the third leader of sexually transmitted diseases among young people in the population by the number of reported cases.
A study in the US interviewed teens about sexually transmitted diseases and revealed that approximately 4% of respondents had chlamydia, 2.3% had Trichomonas, Mycoplasma have about 1% to about 0.4% had gonorrhea. Moreover, a similar study conducted in the UK yielded almost the same results.
But it’s not just that the younger population is at risk, middle-aged men and women are becoming infected as well.
