Doxycycline 100mg

Buy Doxycycline for Ureaplasma

Doxycycline is a good antibiotic for treating Ureaplasma. The type of antibiotic best used to treat your infection will depend on your test results. This is why it is very important to get an STI test done before commencing treatment. We also strongly advise a test of cure (TOC) to be taken once you have competed your treatment. It is also important for your sexual partner(s) to be treated to avoid getting re-infected.

Whilst most Ureaplasma infections are susceptible to macrolides (such as azithromycin) and tetracyclines (such as Doxycycline), the best antibiotic to treat your infection will depend on the results of your STI test. This will highlight which antibiotic will be most successful in treating your infection. Better antibiotic targeting is also beneficial in the fight against antibiotic resistance.

Doxycycline is a prescription only antibiotic, which means that you can only get it from your pharmacy with a prescription from a doctor. The Anytime Doctor service provides an online consultation, following which a prescription is issued when suitable. This is then sent directly to the pharmacy for dispensing, saving you the time and inconvenience of having to go to the doctor and pharmacy in person.

When you get a positive test result from a sexual health test, you will in most cases also be advised which types of antibiotics the organism is susceptible to or which types of antibiotics will not work. This lets our doctors know exactly how to treat your infection with the best chance of clearing it up with one course of antibiotics. If you have not already had a sexual health screen, you may wish to consider using our fast and discreet sexual health testing service.
