Get tested for infections if you experience infertilityDr. Wojo: During nearly every emergency department shift, I deal with genitourinary problems and pregnancy complications. Usually, common infections are found. But sometimes, less common infections -- such as bacterial mycoplasma and ureaplasma infections -- are diagnosed.

What are these infections? Mycoplasmas are some of the smallest living organisms that, unlike most bacteria, do not have cell walls; instead, they live within other live cells. A close relative is ureaplasma. Both of these organisms can be found in up to 70 percent of sexually active adults. But when there is significant overgrowth, problems can occur, such as
pelvic inflammatory disease, urethritis and pregnancy loss.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
