How Is The Development Of The Vaginal Gram Erase Test Results Compared To The Previous One?
Want to ask about the results of the test delete vaginal gram. Epithelium u0026gt; 50 / LPK, Leukocytes 15-17 / LPK, Gram negative rod 4+ ( u0026gt; 30 / LP immersion), Gram positive rod not found, Coccus gram positive 1+ ( u0026lt; 1 / LP immersion) , and for Clue cells, extracellular and intracellular gram-negative Diplococcus, and fungi. Not found. Where the previous test results were different from Epithelium 48-50, Leukocytes 10-12 and found Gram-positive rods 2+ and Clue cells. Please explain about the development of the previous test results with the latest. thanks.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
From the results of the attached vaginal swab, it gives the impression that there are abnormal bacterial growths, namely Gram negative bacteria and Gram positive coccus bacteria. Both are not normally found in vaginal tissue, which should contain lots of Gram-positive bacteria, Lactobacillus as much as 95% to maintain acidity in the vagina.
In this case normal bacteria are not found, so there is a shift in the number of good bacteria with pathogenic bacteria. Many leukocytes on this examination also illustrate that an infection has occurred.
Compared with previous tests, good bacteria were found, but an infection was seen from clue cells, which are epithelial cells surrounded by bacteria.
Make further consultations with your doctor to confirm these results with symptoms and physical examination results to determine the appropriate treatment.
Because the causes vary, the treatment is based on the underlying cause.
In general, management at home that can be done to prevent recurrence is to maintain personal hygiene by avoiding the use of vaginal antiseptics that will cause irritation of the vaginal wall and imbalance of normal bacteria in the vagina.
That's all, hope you can help
