I'm writing to you because I was diagnosed with ureaplasma urealyticum abroad (routine STD testing) - no symptoms. I was prescribed seemingly strong antibiotics (looking at what other diseases it is used to treat), doxycyclin. I have learned that in some countries this is not considered an STD since it's presenton 70% of people. I also found a study online that advises against treating ureaplasma without any symptoms (because of the development of bacteria resistance), but also found articles that says that it's a very dangerous infection which can lead to infertility or joint problems. So I'm properly confused as what to do about it. Should I take the antibiotics? What about my partner? I don't want to develop antibiotics resistance either, or well I don't want the bacterias in me to do that at least.
Can you please share your thoughts about this with me?
