Are Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma and Chlamydia type bacteria worth investigating?

According to an article by Dr Gabe Mirkin, apparently these guys are very difficult to test for using standard lab testing and can only be treated by specific antibiotics for various lengths of time (depending how long you've been infected). He also mentions the infection can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated - which makes it more difficult to treat.

He describes the following in relation to bladders:
"Usually your first symptoms from chlamydia, ureaplasma and mycoplasma are burning on urination, a feeling that you have to urinate all the time, terrible discomfort when the bladder is full and vaginal itching, odor or discharge."

We automatically think these infections are sexually transmitted, but Dr Mirkin says you can become infected from an infected person coughing in your face.

Interestingly, Professor Malone-Lee's UK research team have found mycoplasma and related species in bladders.

The article lists a number of research papers that I haven't followed up on yet.

Yes, some labs in Australia are using PCR testing for mycoplasma but what they're setup to look for is limited - and often what they test for in men is different to what they test for in women. So if you come back negative, it means you were negative for one specific type of mycoplasma. I don't know how many different types, but I've read there are four main ones currently identified with urogenital and respiratory infections.
