Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Ureaplasma? Anyone have it?

I've had 4 miscarriages, all very early. All my rpl tests have been normal. I asked my gyno to test me for ureaplasma, cause I read it can cause miscarriages and bladder issues, which I was also having. The test ended up being positive but she says she doubts it causes miscarriages. She only gave me a week of doxycycline.
Has anyone had ureaplasma and cured it and went on to a sucessful pregnancy?
Thank you!

Re: Ureaplasma? Anyone have it?

  • @cparker28 Yes!  I was diagnosed with having ureaplasma after 4 MCs, when I went to my second RE (for a second opinion and more testing).  Both my husband and myself had to take medicine to get rid of it, and then I was tested again and we were fine.  Sadly, I went on to have a 5th MC, so it did not seem to be my problem.  :disappointed: 

    If she didn't give medicine to your husband, then it won't matter if you eliminate it in yourself.  Ureaplasma is an STI and can be transmitted back and forth between you and sexual partners, and most of the time it's something that no one knows they have.  So if ONLY you were given the meds, your husband probably has it and will give it right back to you.
