Brief Answer:
Test one month after treatment

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
For mycoplasma infection a test of cure one month after treatment is very important to make sure that the antibiotics have worked. This will help in the actual assessment with minimal chances of a false result. Tavanic or levofloxacin is not 100% effective in everyone so if your test of cure shows Mycoplasma genitalium is still present after one month of treatment then a second course of antibiotics is required.
Also it is important to tell your recent sexual partner that you have been diagnosed with Mycoplasma genitalium and ask him to get himself treated.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Hi. I was diagnosed with mycoplasma genitalium 3 months ago. Got doxycycline which didn't kill it all off and also azirhromycine that eventually got me to test negative. Meanwhile I had mycoplasma I had testicle pain. It ended after the antibiotic therapy. Now my testicles have become very weird hanging and it seems like they shrunk in size and there is no pain. I went to the ER and they told me it was all normal. I tried masturbating and when I ejaculated the sperm was very watery and there is no white just clear like water. Very little sticky. What's really going on here? I'm afraid it might have spread to my prostate and seminal vesicles too... Does this mean I'm infertile?? Please help what should I do??
