This is a bacterial infection that affects about 30-70% of sexually active men and women. It is not been classified as standard sexually transmitted infection because it is very common in the population and most people with the infection do not show any symptom or sign of it.
We call it sexually transmittable infection. In contrast to the classic STIs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea, which are bacteria that should not be found in the body. However, the bacteria can cause similar complications, such as pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility just like chlamydia and gonorrhoea.

This infection is extremely contagious, is most often spread though unprotected sexual contact including oral, vaginal and anal contacts.
