Hello, thank you for your question.
Leucorrhoea / fluorine albus is a common complaint in women and during pregnancy, the incidence increases, mainly due to changes in the pH / acidity of the female area due to hormonal changes during pregnancy.
Leucorrhoea in women is most often caused by infections, especially fungi, parasites, and an overgrowth of normal bacteria or certain bacterial infections. your results do not mention any parasites / fungi so the two causes above may be considered later.
The number of leukocytes and epithelium did experience a slight increase. Gram-negative rods can mean nothing because the lactobacillus, a normal vaginal bacteria that is good in nature, will print like this under a microscope. attention may be more to the presence of gram-positive stem bacteria, especially if it is found in large numbers and encircles the epithelium generally found in the condition of bacteriosis vaginalis, a state of overgrowth of Gardnella bacteria (which also happens to be heavily influenced by hormonal and changes in vaginal pH) and is more common in pregnancy. If it is true that the discharge is due to this, then antibiotics may be needed.
However, clinical consideration of complaints and symptoms and physical examination is essential. make sure you consult and undergo an examination directly with a doctor. If necessary, referral to a gynecologist can be done. Moreover, some of the vaginal discharge is basically normal, and does not necessarily require therapy. In addition, make sure you don't use feminine cleaning products too often as they can disrupt the normal pH of the vagina and actually worsen the condition, just wash it with warm water several times a day and make sure to dry it well.
That is what I can say, hopefully this is useful
