Mycoplasma is the smallest prokaryotic organism that can live independently. It exists widely in nature. It can also be one of the "normal bacteria" in human body. Urethritis symptoms may occur once mycoplasma infection occurs in patients, and secondarily to chronic prostatitis, orchitis and epididymitis, and obstruction of the vas deferens which leads to Azoospermia. 

Mycoplasma also continues to infect seminal tract, seminal vesicle and testis, affecting the quality of sperm and semen and causing male infertility.
How does mycoplasma cause male infertility?
1. Destruction of spermatogenic cells: There are a large number of spermatogenic cells in the seminiferous tubules of testis. These spermatogenic cells develop and reproduce to form sperm. When mycoplasma enters testicular seminiferous tubules from urethra and prostate, it will destroy spermatogenic cells and make "spermatogenic factory" produce fake and inferior products, leading to infertility.
2. Increased rate of sperm malformation: Another feature of infertility is increased rate of sperm malformation caused by mycoplasma infection. According to clinical observation, sperm malformation rate can sometimes be as high as 80% in such infertile patients.
3. Disturbance of sperm motility: Sperm motility is an important function of healthy sperm and an important indication whether sperm can conceive, and sperm motility must have a certain speed and frequency. Mycoplasma often attaches to the head and tail of sperm after infecting, which makes the whole sperm full of attachments of different sizes, resulting in inability of sperm to swim and entanglement with each other, and then leading to infertility.
4. The number of sperm with fertility decreases, motility decreases, morphological abnormalities emerges, and some of them lose the ability to enter and bind to the egg.

5. Neuraminidase produced by mycoplasma can interfere the combination of sperm and ovum. This is one of the causes of infertility brought about by mycoplasma infection.
6. Mycoplasma urealyticum infection also has common antigens with sperm membrane. Once infected, it may lead to immune infertility. 
Patients with positive mycoplasma must be treated in time. Mycoplasma infection can be treated with Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, which has the efficacy of sterilization, anti-inflammation, blood circulation promoting, blood stasis removing, diuresis and stranguria treating. It has good therapeutic effect on male urinary system diseases, including male infertility. This is a pure herbal medicine formulation, which comes from natural minerals, plants and animal drugs, and does not produce any toxic and side effects on the body.
