Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma species have been associated with genital tract infection and infertility. M. genitalium has been implicated in cervicitis, endometritis and PID. Because of its fastidious nature, this organism is not routinely cultured and is better detected by molecular methods. M. hominis has also been linked to upper genitourinary tract infection and to premature labor and abortion. Recently, by molecular means two groups have been distinguished-U. parvum and U. urelyticum, with the former being more prevalent in the lower genital tract of healthy women. It is not clear which species more predominately causes infection. M. hominis and the Ureaplasma appear to be opportunist when they infect the upper genitourinary tract. These organisms have also been targeted as having a possible role in infertility, although this remains a grey area.
