Brief Answer:
It's a STD

Detailed Answer:
Hello !Thank you for using Health Care Magic .
I have gone through your question and I understand your concern .

Mycoplasma Genitalium it's a STD ( Sexually transmitted Diseases ) so it may be a chance you can take it through unprotected oral sex when you are the active one and the other patner is a carrier of this Mycoplasma.
Could be symptomatic ( you may have symptoms ) or symptomatic ( means that even you don't have symptoms you may have it.)

If you have any symptoms of a possible active infection you should do a swab test (throat,penis).

Hope i have answered your question.
Let me know if you have any further clarifications, I will be happy to help.
Take Care !

Brief Answer:
You need to do another test

Detailed Answer:
Hello again!
You have the symptoms of a urinary tract infection that may be cause by a STD.
The microscope test can not detect this mycoplasma , it's not the test that we use, it's not enough, so of course that will be negative even if you had it.
You need to do a NAAT test (nucleic acid amplification test ) thats a PCR test method, this is the only that can detect this bacteria .
Remember that you need to be tested for other STD also (Gonorhea,Chlamydia ..).

Another way how to act if the clinic can not do the test is by starting the antibiotic treatment after we rule ut any other STD .Start with Azithromicin and see how your body wi react.

Hope this is helpful.
Take Care !

Hi again

Detailed Answer:
Hello again!
The culture test is reliable for other STD but for this kind of Mycoplasma is not because it can not grow in the culture in the laboratory .
The symptoms sometimes may go away and come back.
I would reccomend to do the PCR test to rule out ,it's better to be checked and to be 100%sure you do not have the Mycoplasma.

Hi I have been tested negative for thyroid & liver problems & arthritis. However I am unwell at least for sometime every day and have the following symptoms. Slight arrythmia, heat intolerance, even when it isn t hot at all I can heat up a lot, when i drink even cold drinks I heat up. Breathlessness, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, trembling hands, muscle weakness, depression, concentration difficulties, even when I eat a lot I don t put on weight. I have difficulty getting back to sleep when I wake up at night, pains/aches in joints and hands, mood swings, forgetfullness, body odour problems. When I twist the upper part of my body, where my thyroid is it feels like something is grinding and it blocks my airways a bit making it difficult to breathe. I take no medications apart from a ventolin inhaler. I have been diagnosed with adhd, tourette syndrome & depression. It really appears to me to be a thyroid problem but the tests have always been negative

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael
