Hello!

Your gram stain result shows nothing of a pathological nature

Descriptions of a few bacteria are noted but we know that the vaginal space always has colonizing bacteria present so that is normal ...

No clue calls = no bacterial vaginosis

No yeast infection is noted

Rate white cells ( pus cells ) rare # is ok ...

No symptoms

All over your results = normal ..nothing to worry about

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Dr. Bray

Sir you said - Descriptions of a few bacteria are noted - can it be said this bacteria that was found is good bacteria?
I also got tested for gonorrhea, clhymedia, and HSV 2, also aerobic high vaginal swab and c/s urine test - all came out good, they did not find anything.I just have moderate white discharge when I am on the mood / around my period, but that is normal, isnt it?Thank you!
OB GYN Doctor: Anthony Bray MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

These are non-specific results

A mixture of bacteria is normal ..yes to that ...

Normal flora is a mixture

Often lactobacillus ( a gram positive rod ) is predominant and normal

Finding some gram negative rods of the vaginal area is also going to be a normal finding

You have had pathogens ( disease related organisms ruled out )

Yes you seem quite normal considering your results and descriptions ...

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
