Brief Answer:
Need biopsy

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns about pap smear examination report.

Report clearly shows presence of infection in the cervical smear. This needs to be treated. Please see your doctor for antibiotics prescription to treat coccobacilli.

Since there are atypical squamous cells which could be precancerous, you might needs cervical biopsy to confirm the atypical cells and rule out cancer. Please see your gynecologist to discuss the report.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
