The present invention is directed to a rapid and sensitive method for detecting $i(Ureaplasma urealyticum) using $i(U. urealyticum)-specific probes and oligonucleotides. In particular a target sequence can be amplified by $i(in vitro) nucleic acid amplification techniques or directly detected by nucleic acid hybridization using the subject probes and oligonucleotides. $i(U. urealyticum)-specific nucleic acids which do not recognize or hybridize to genomic nucleic acid of $i(Mycoplasma) species are also provided.
