Hi, This report points to infection of your genital tract. If you have any symptoms you should consult a urologist for proper treatment. If you don't have any symptoms then results may be biased and you should repeat the test in a good lab ( both culture & sensitivity) So, that appropriate antibiotic can be given to you if turn out to be positive. Take care.
