Brief Answer: Resistant Detailed Answer: Hi This report indicates your semen is infected with the said organism which is unfortunately resistant to many antibiotics which are commonly used. Hence I suggest you repeat culture with different set of antibiotics. Please request the microbiologist in lab to try with different antibiotics than present set. You can take antibiotics accordingly. Please send me a scanned copy of report attaching with this mail. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards Dr. Mahesh Koregol
