Ureaplasma urealyticum Is part of the normal genital flora, although under certain conditions, excessive growth of these bacteria causes inflammation and infection of the urinary and genital system, which is attributed to Sexually Transmitted Infections The group.

When should we take the test?

  • Exclusion of urealyticum as a clinical cause of aragonococcal urethritis, prostatitis, orchiepididymitis (in men), colpitis, endocervicitis, vulvovaginitis (in women), cystitis, Reiter's disease;
  • exclusion of urealyticum as a concomitant infection in the presence of other sexually transmitted diseases;
  • During infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, pregnancy complications (miscarriage, premature birth);
  • Monitoring the effectiveness of treatment Monitoring (not earlier than 3 weeks after the end of treatment).

Possible interpretation of the results

Identified in the study material U. urealyticum:

U. urealyticum is the etiological cause of clinical manifestations.

In research material U. urealyticum Not revealed:

  • Infection is not noted;
  • U. urealyticum cannot be detected in the study material;
  • Small amount of pathogen (its level is below analytical susceptibility);
  • False-negative result in the presence of PCR test inhibitors in the study material.

Additional information

Infection caused by ureaplasma urealyticum is associated with inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract (urethritis) and vagina (vaginosis), but can also affect the upper urinary tract.

Symptoms include:

During urethritis - Burning and pain when urinating;

During vaginosis - Vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor.

  1. Urealyticum carries an increased risk of preterm birth, kidney stones, and pneumonia in newborns. They are also important in the pathogenesis of complications in pregnant women such as preterm birth, intrauterine infections, chorioamnionitis, placental infection, low birth weight and postpartum uterine infections.

Molecular diagnostics is considered to be the most common method of diagnosing ureaplasma infection - Polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This method allows timely identification of pathogens with high diagnostic sensitivity and specificity and appointment of treatment.

Research material

Recommended for PCR diagnostics:

  • In men The first part of the morning urine Use. This is the most optimal material in which case the diagnostic sensitivity reaches 85% -95%.
  • Consumption of the first part of urine in women has a lower diagnostic sensitivity (about 80-90%) than in men, so in the case of women Urogenital smear Recognized as the most optimal material for testing. The study of the first part of the urine in women can be used in situations where it is difficult to take a smear from the vagina and cervix (for example, in pregnant women) or in the face of a cystitis clinic (including chronic). It is the most optimal time to examine women The fourth week from the first day of the last menstrual period.

The research material should be brought to the laboratory by 13:00.

How to prepare for the test?

Before smearing:

  • Do not use a vaginal shower;
  • It is recommended to abstain from sexual intercourse for at least 24-48 hours;
  • Do not urinate directly before smearing;
  • Contraceptive use should be discontinued three days in advance;
  • The smear is taken 24-48 hours after the colposcopy and 24 hours after the vaginal ultrasound examination;
  • Perform external genital hygiene procedures without the use of soap and other detergents;
  • The test may be performed no earlier than 10-14 days after completion of antibacterial, antifungal, or topical antiseptics;
  • It is recommended to perform the test during ovulation or in the presence of symptoms of inflammatory disease of the urogenital tract.
  • No examination is performed during menstrual bleeding.
  • The study is conducted 2 weeks after taking preparations containing microorganisms (probiotics, eubiotoc).
