This Little-Known STD Could Become The 'Next Superbug' Within A Decade

  • Doctors often mistake the infection for chlamydia the British Association of Sexual Health and HIV said

Sexual health experts warn that Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) has the potential to become a drug-resistant superbug within a matter of years.

But specialists warn this is set to double within 10 years as the infection rapidly becomes untreatable.

The British Association of Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) has released new guidelines on how to treat and diagnose the disease.

BASHH recommends that MG is treated with a seven-day course of the antibiotic, doxycycline, followed by a course of azithromycin.

MG now affects one in 100 people and if untreated can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease which causes infertility. This is made worse by the fact MG is often misdiagnosed, and can go untreated.

Experts say a lack of test kits means it is regularly confused with chlamydia and treated with incorrect doses of antibiotics - building up risky antibiotic resistance which could see it soon become untreatable. Macrolide resistance in the United Kingdom is estimated at about 40%, say the guidelines.

Most people who carry the MG infection have no symptoms - but are still able to pass it on to others. The greatest outcome is for women with pelvic inflammatory disease caused by MG, which would be very hard to treat, putting them at increased risk of infertility'.

Doctors say an uncommon sexually transmitted disease, Mycoplasma genitalium (MG), which often has no symptoms may pose a great health risk if people aren't more cautious.

Dr Helen Fifer, consultant microbiologist at Public Health England, said: "The new BASHH guideline on MG is a positive step forward to improving testing and diagnosis". You can't shut down easyJet, the internet, Tinder and Grindr, all of which make it easier to find new partners.

MG does not always cause symptoms and will not always need treatment, but it can be missed or mistaken for a different sexually transmitted infection, such as Chlamydia. "Everyone can protect themselves from STIs by consistently and correctly using condoms with new and casual partners".
