Can't beat Mycoplasma Genitalium

Hi everyone. So this is a bit of a long story, but I'll try to keep it short and to the point.

I went through a really tough time and I had a fling with a girl I didn't really know. We had unprotected sex and I'm now paying the price.

I developed symptoms, burning & discharge, took Doxycycline prescribed for 1 week and test came back positive for chlamydia. I finished antibiotics, symptoms cleared. Came back and prescribed 1g azithromycin. Symptoms completely cleared again. Blood test for HIV & Syphilis, normal results. Symptoms come back, prescribed 1g azithromycin again. Negative for chlamydia but symptoms persist. Tested for multiple STI's again. Tested positive for Mycoplasma Genitalium (wasn’t originally tested for). Prescribed 10 day course of Moxifloxacin. Symptoms cleared. Was then prescribed 1g followed by 6x500mg azithromycin to ensure it was gone. Symptoms slowly reappearing despite having since had a negative Mycoplasma Genitalium test since the last antibiotics.

Could this be recurring urethritis despite no infection - can that happen? I've not had any type of sexual contact with anyone for months.

Please help me. This is causing all kinds of anxiety!

Thanks in advance.

Hi, i would suggest to have the yellow discharge examined to see what it is. Sometimes taking a lot of antibiotics can throw off your bodies Ph causing a yeast infection.

Thanks Dave. It was nearly 8 weeks ago since any antibiotics now, but I'm hoping you're right. I'm going to a new clinic tomorrow.  I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks!
I went to the clinic this morning, and I do still have an infection. They've sent off for more tests and prescribed me with another course of doxycycline. I'm not going to take it, I'm going to await the results... not really wanting to put more antibiotics into my body. They've not worked yet, so it's very unlikely they're going to work this time!
i would agree with you

Hi there. I’ve had a similar issue. 24yo female and fought mg for 6 months. Finally use 10 day moxi and retest cae back negative but consistency of discharge is thick and normal colored but does not hold well and still is runny/watery. I feel e I’ll neveret back to normal but I’m wondering too if something else is lurking, praying I beat mg. Did you get your results from most recent test? Mg came back after testing negative ?

Eventually I beat it. 10 days of pristinamycin which had to be imported from France. Took a lot of effort and time to get them to import it, had to try all kinds of combinations of antibiotics first before whoever it is who has to approve drug imports to allow it. Good luck!
P.S. It did come back after the last test, it was a false negative! Been symptom free since the pristinamcyin for 6 months now.

Hey happybillie how did you get the Pristinamycin? Could you explain. I’m desperate to get ahold of it but am in the US also. I’ve lived with this for too long and am willing to try anything my tests were also positive and then negative after Moxifloxacin but I still have symptoms and stinging pain. It’s been about a year.

Hi folks, I'm American and I got pristinamycin by actually going to France and going to the ER and talking to a doctor. It's basically just like the US, but you have to make the trek out there.

Haven't taken it yet. Will update later maybe. No positive MG diagnosis for me fyi
