If you’ve got MGen, don’t have sex with anyone until seven days after you’ve finished your antibiotics
Don’t have sex with anyone that’s been diagnosed with MGen, until seven days after they have finished their course of antibiotics
Regular STI testing – every 6-12 months – is also important and part of a healthy and confident sex life
Testing and treatment for Mycoplasma Genitalium
The test is either a urine test or a vaginal swab. The good news is MGen is usually curable with antibiotics, but it sometimes requires more than one course of antibiotics. If you do have MGen, make sure you let anyone you’ve had sexual contact with know so they can get treated too. And, as always make sure you go back for regular testing.
