Mycoplasma genitalium, is more common than N. gonorrhoeae but less common than C. trachomatis. in case of Urethritis and Cervicitis, the 7-day doxycycline regimen recommended for treatment of urethritis is largely ineffective against M. genitalium with a median cure rate of approximately 31% . The 1-g single dose of azithromycin was significantly more effective against M. genitalium than doxycycline in two randomized urethritis treatment trials, and is preferred over doxycycline. However, resistance to azithromycin appears to be rapidly emerging.
