Screening and treating Ureaplasma in pregnancy
Hello fellow midwives,
I wanted to ask how many of you are screening for ureaplasma on Pap's in pregnancy? I am seeing Ureaplasma show up several times on my NOB Pap's and the physician treats the pt with Azithromycin. I have read that there can be an association between preterm birth, stillbirth, chorio and colonisation of Ureaplasma in pregnancy, so it seems appropriate. However, I was not taught about treating Ureaplasma in school just 2 yrs ago.
Any thoughts would be appreciated,
Lisa Malmquist, CNM.
