Yes, doxycycline will typically work for a Ureaplasma infection. The two common medicines for Ureaplasma are azithromycin and doxycycline. There is no antibiotic that works 100% of the time, but both work quite well.
So, the doxycycline is an appropriate antibiotic for Ureaplasma and will work the vast majority of the time, but in the rare case in which the doxycycline is not effective, the alternative would be azithromycin.
If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
Yes, any recent sexual partner is usually also treated. They can be treated with either antibiotic.
Please let me know if I can provide any further assistance.
