Hello Dinah,
Thanks for coming to HCM. Gram positive bacteria are a part of normal flora in vaginal fluid. You should take full course of the prescribed medicines which will treat the infection you have got. You can discuss with your doctor and get counseling on safe sexual practices and testing in case of risk of infections from unprotected sex.
Wish you a speedy recovery!
