The mycoplasma genitalium bug, known as MG, makes women infertile.

One in every 100 British adults aged 18 to 44 are already thought to be infected with the bug.

The article goes on to state the following:

Experts are warning that this figure is set to double within 10 years as it becomes untreatable.

A total of 3,000 women a year could lose the ability to have children, the British Association of Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) said. BASHH has published the first official guidelines on management of MG on Wednesday.

Paddy Horner, of BASHH, told Daily Mail: “MG has the potential to become a superbug within a decade, resistant to standard antibiotics. “The greatest consequence of this is for the women who present with pelvic inflammatory disease caused by MG, which would be very hard to treat, putting them at increased risk of infertility.”

While the infection was identified back in 1981, not much was known about it until recently. It’s commonly misdiagnosed as chlamydia. This means the bug has been getting stronger due to it being treated with the wrong drugs. This makes it resistant to antibiotics.

For most people there are no symptoms to the MG infection but they pass it on to others and spread the bug. It can lead to painful inflammation for men while women can have their wombs scarred by the infection, leaving them infertile.
