i have been diagnosed with the same thing about 2 years ago . and i can tell you mashash that some antibiotics will do things fine plus keep up the treatment. as Vance said its a normal bacteria.read about STDs as well.
and yes your husband needs treatment if he has such a thing , ask him and go to a special clinic to check him self.and stop doubting,
i did the same with my husband . and he made test for syphilis ,HIV, herpes , chlamydia , RPR ,..etc  and the test's all cameout negative.

mycoplasma hominis is not a threaty infection , as i also had this before and been treated in a short time.i did same as you carolinablu with my husband, as well as his test all was  negative.
doctors at that time said its an STD . as well as u could get it thru other things , but it was a samll % for that.
i had a doubt as well with my husband, but when i saw his test negativly i start breathing again.
and we are not sure yet about the reason , but most likly as what doctors said also , it could be infected tools or items in our life. i just want to advice you to let ur husband take the step and make a test . if its negative then dont wast ur time doubting .. and look at the other things you have in your life, and always wash your underwear with hot water.. thats a very important thing, shaving machine, towel, bed cover.  GD luck ! mashash in that.

M.Hominis is common organism and is unlike other STDs. They are shared by sex partners but their presence does not imply that either you or your husband have had other sexpartners recently. It is not unusual for monogamous couples to suddenly experience a M. Hominis infection even after years of exclusivity. In these cases there are other factors at work that make infection by this common bacteria more likely. For example:

M.hominis is a bacteria that could be in the vagina if you have Bacterial Vaginosis and also other vaginal infections. With BV the normal bacterias are less and replaced with other bacterias such as Gardella Vaginalis and M.Hominis,these can in normal cases be present in the vagina, but if you have BV the amount of them is increased.
