Unfortunately, many fertility doctors disagree about the impact of mycoplasma on fertility. Mycoplasma and ureaplasma are often found in fertile couples — not just those struggling with infertility.
Some researchers think these bacteria play a role in infertility and miscarriage, but it remains unclear how or why it may impact some people but not others.
I used to do the test, but couldn’t see any difference in outcomes, and found that the mycoplasma treatments went on too long and can only be treated with a few antibiotics…so I stopped.
However, researchers are still studying what mycoplasma and ureaplasma mean for your reproductive health. So if your doctors are concerned, they aren’t alone in that regard.
