Hello Irene,

Your welcome to HCM and thank you for posting.
It is a pleasure answering your questions. There are normal/natural bacterial vaginal flora mainly constituted of lactobacilli ( bacteria that produce acid that help to fight against presence of other pathogenic bacteria in the vagina). These results show clearly that they are some bacteria that are abnormally found in your vagina that will probably be responsible for vaginitis or bacterial vaginosis ( provided you are presenting with symptoms). The germs that are present in your smear are normally found in the rectum, hence their presence here will require treatment. A course of antibiotics such as metronidazole is well indicated to eradicate these germs.

Hope this helps
