Thanks for your query.

The Yellowish discharge you have could be due to infection in the vaginal canal with Trichomonas vaginalis or gardnerella infection.

The test you mentioned above

HVS M/C/S (High Vaginal Swab, Microscopy /Culture /Sensitivity to antibiotics)

Is one where the secretions for the vagina are taken and examined under microscope and cultured for any organism to grow.Once the bacterial colonies are grown they are subjected to antibiotic sensitivity test to place you on suitable antibiotics.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
