Hello and welcome to HCM,
The interpretation of high vaginal smear is as follows:
The smear shows presence of gram positive cocci in vaginal smears.
However, culture does not show growth of any pathogenic bacteria.
This implies that there is no evidence of pathogenic bacteria in the vaginal tract.
Only normal flora is present.
Nothing needs to be done.

Thanks and take care
