Your vaginal smear report points towards the diagnosis of Bacterial vaginitis. It needs to be treated with oral antibiotics and improving the local hygiene in the form of vaginal douching. But your report lacks the details about your age which is very important in the treatment. Guessing your age as between 20+ or 30+ you may need immediate treatment. All the best for a healthy life....
