I recently got tested for a whole range of STDs at a private clinic in the UK, where I live. I tested positive only for ureaplasma.
After searching for more information (much of it contradictory) I went to the genito urinary clinic at a hospital here in the UK. Both the doctor and consultant told me they don't even screen for ureaplasma and that it is asymptomatic in women and that many people have it in any case.
Apparently it's only treated in men if symptoms arise, ie urethritis. While at the GUM clinic (two weeks ago) I was tested for urethritis, but this came back negative. But over these last few days I feel some symptoms (my imagination?), not pain my penis but more a slight discomfort in my bladder.
My question is: should I get treated or does ureaplasma-caused urethritis go away on it's own? I understand that there's no point in just myself taking the treatment, but my wife would be extremely reluctant to take antibiotics as she has suffered for years with thrush, possibly brought on by antibiotics taken years ago.
