An STI Called MGen May Become A Superbug

The British Association of Sexual Health and HIV is attempting to prevent the sexually transmitted infection mycoplasma genitalium, also known as MGen or MG, from developing into a superbug. CNN reports the association has published guidelines for sexually active people. MGen is quickly becoming treatment-resistant and could become a superbug in five years. Giving antibiotics for chlamydia to patients with MGen builds the strength of MGen, making it more resistant to antibiotics. Once it becomes resistant to antibiotics, MGen could leave up to 4,800 women infertile each year in the UK.
