Ureaplasma detected in my prostatic massage culture.

Customer Question

Ureaplasma detected in my prostatic massage urine culture. Will doxy get rid of it it, because I heard prostate infections are notoriously hard to treat. What is the best method? Seeding?

CPPS symptoms for almost 2 years now. Hope this ureaplasma might be the cause.

yes. it should cover it, but you would need to take it for at least 10 days. sometimes you would have to take it for three weeks.
