Source:

Chlamydia trachomatous, T. mycoplasma, ureaplasma urealyticum, mycolasma hominis. An estimated quarter of cases are allergic reactions to latex or spermicide.

Symptoms:

Similar to gonorrhea but usually milder. Urethral discharge is generally thin and clear. Planned Parenthood estimates that half of the women with one of these diseases doesn’t know it. NSU/NGU in women can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and sterility. 

Treatment: 

Penicillin is generally not effective against NGU/NSU- causing organisms. Tetracycilne is generally prescribed; sulfa drugs are effective against chlamydia but not the others. 

Transmission: 

In cases involving a pathogen, sexual intercourse, as well as hands with semen or vaginal secretions on them infecting the eye.
