Researchers have discovered a urinary tract infection, a health hazard. In the UK alone identified 20 of thousands of infected people. The pathogen Mycoplasma genitalium is quite difficult to identify because of the lack of symptoms.
According to the data obtained by scientists from University College London, one hundredth of an adult is infected with the genital form of Mycoplasma. The infection is transmitted sexually through unprotected sexual intercourse.
By itself, the pathogen does not cause a separate disease, however, leads to inflammation of the pelvic organs. Women on the background of mycoplasmosis may develop infertility or ectopic pregnancy.
