1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Mycoplasma genitalium is an STI. The study found that 4.5% of patients at the Mackay STI clinic who got tested for it during a 15-month period tested positive for the infection. Being <35 years old was a risk factor; being Indigenous, a man who has sex with men, an IV drug user or HIV-positive did not increase risk of infection.
