Can A Positive Ureaplasma Urealyticum Infection Affect Pregnancy?

The normal female vagina is not sterile and is a relatively balanced "microenvironment" formed by various microorganisms. They form an ecological balance that will not lead to the occurrence of disease. And ureaplasma urealyticum is one of the common pathogens. 

 
 
Mycoplasma urealyticum infects the female vagina, leading to a positive result. Will it cause female infertility? 
 
The positive result of ureaplasma mycoplasma does not lead to infertility. Still, the premise is no symptoms of genital tract infection, such as abdominal pain, urinary tract or vaginal itching, burning pain, vaginal secretions increase, frequent or urgent urination, urinary pain, cervical erosion, etc. In addition to no other pathogen infection, a positive result will not lead to infertility. 
 
However, if the following conditions occur, it is possible to cause infertility phenomenon: 
 
(1) Ureaplasma urealyticum decomposes urea and damages the local weak acidic environment of the vagina, increasing the risk of infection. 
 
(2) Ureaplasma urealyticum stimulates the immune response and produces anti-sperm antibodies and anti-endometrial antibodies. 
 
(3) Ureaplasma urealyticum retrogrades infection, resulting in endometritis, salpingitis, tubal obstruction, tubal umbrella inflammation, and pelvic inflammatory disease, etc. 
 
(4) Ureaplasma urealyticum affects sperm motility, which may be caused by mycoplasma adhesion affecting sperm motility, or by ureaplasma urealyticum inducing the production of anti-sperm antibodies. 
 
When the examination of urea-mycoplasma during pregnancy is positive, should women need to treat? 
 
Most clinical studies have concluded that there is no need to intervene and treat patients with positive urealyticum in the lower reproductive tract during pregnancy. However, ureaplasma may retrograde infection into the uterine cavity, resulting in implantation disorders and villi damage, resulting in pregnancy termination. Ureaplasma can stimulate the production of host immune-active cells, release a variety of cytokines, and cause spontaneous abortion and embryo to stop development. Therefore, it needs to be treated actively. 
 
When the result of urea-mycoplasma is shown positive, how should it be treated? 
 
1. Physical treatment
 
Warm benign stimulation can promote local pelvic blood circulation, improve the tissue's nutritional status, improve metabolism, and facilitate the absorption and elimination of inflammation. But this kind of physical therapy can only eliminate the pathogen cells in the superficial layer of the epidermis and can not restore the tissue. And it will excessively stimulate the female mycoplasma infection wall, and general patients are not recommended to use physical therapy treatment. 
 
2. Antibiotic treatment 
 
Urealyticum is mainly found in non-gonococcal urethritis, which is a common sexually transmitted disease in clinics. Generally, this situation needs to be treated on drugs. For urealyticum infection, common drugs, like Doxycycline and Azithromycin antibiotics, can be used to treat.  
 
3. Traditional Chinese medicine treatment 
 
Some traditional Chinese medicine, with the effects of clearing dampness, removing stranguria, and promoting blood circulation, can achieve a well curative effect, such as Fuyan Pill. It can treat Urealyticum, kill all kinds of bacteria, protect the body from damage, and improve the immunity of the female body.  
 
4. Adjuvant therapy 
 
It is beneficial to drink more water and urine more to dilute bacteria because the urethra has the effect of diluting. It is best to take condoms when having sex and pay attention to personal hygiene in daily life. 
 
Besides, remember to have a proper diet, keep a balanced nutritional structure, and eat less spicy food during the treatment. Keep a good mood and relieve psychological pressure. Do appropriate exercise to enhance body resistance. Also, keep the vulva clean, and wash and ventilate underwear separately.
