This article doesn't make sense. Why does something that is "part of the normal genital flora of both men and women" need antibiotic treatment? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:05, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand how does a person get an infection like this?

The figure of 70% incidence in the population is quite on the high end. The author should verify this or cite appropiate references.

I was told that this is a rare thing to catch.

you get it from having oral or vaginal sex like you get everything else accept it lives in the throat too so you get it from coughing and people can carry them around and give it from a hand shake cuz they live literally outside the box wash your hands and cover mouths people.

Ureaplasma is an STD -- one of the most common. Safe sex with uninfected partners is your best bet. It does NOT live in your throat and you WON'T get it from people shaking your hands or coughing.Danierrr (talk) 03:07, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
