Ureaplasma is a bacterium which occurs naturally in men and woman. Therefore, it is not considered a classic sexually transmitted infection, although it can be passed through sexual contact. When a colony of the bacteria overgrows, it can cause irritation.
An infection can cause symptoms that are similar to those of Urethritis such as genital discharge, pain during urination and redness and inflammation around the site of infection.
