Gram positive coccobacilli and leukocytes

This is the result of my Gram's stain:
Gram positive coccobacilli - many
Gram negativebacilli - rare
Leukocytes - moderate

Questions:
1. What is gram positive coccobacilli?
2. How do we get gram positive coccobacilli?
3. Will my partner be infected with it also?
4. What treatments should I undergo?
5. What are leukocytes?
6. How do we get leukocytes?

Kindly answer this post.
I am really worried and I can't do anything yet in regard to this concern.
Thank you very much.

Hi

1) coccobacilli is a fancy term for bacteria.  That it was  "gram positive" means that it has a double wall membrane.   They just know that some antibiiotics won't work on it.
2) its part of the normal flora of the body --so there's many ways to get it; vaginally or orally.
3) maybe your got it from your partner, and its probably part of her normal flora, meaning that it causes no damage to her.  
4) see your doctor for proper treatment.  
5) leukocytes are White blood cells
4) we are born with White blood cells.  If White bood cells are found in urethra swab, then its a sign of infection  (NGU).

Sorry 'had to correct myself:  

That it was  "gram positive" means that it has a SINGLE wall membrane and is one of normal bacteria.

To JessyJames2010, one more question please.
What will happen this coccobacilli will not be treated?
Also, I'm female.

To gracefromHHP, its not from urine, it was from my discharge. I also had a urinalysis and the doctor said that it was fine. So, i think there is no gonorrhea.

Thank you guys for your responses. I really appreciate your help one this concern.

What term is used for a double walled membrane?
Blank

unless its chlamydia, then nothing you probably don't even need treatment.

bacteria with double walled membranes are gram negative bacteria

These I assume woukd be foreign pathogens like chlamydia or mycoplasmas and would require antibiotic treatmet

yes.

Don't be afraid to start new threads with new questions.
As long as they are new questions we'll answer them.

actually no jessy, our read before posting post specifically asks folks to keep all their questions in the same post, not make new ones.



you need to make sure you were specifically tested for gonorrhea since typically that is what discharge with this result is + for.

How would I know if its chlamydia? My doctor did not mention about it during my check-up. She just said that I would have to take some medicines because I have coccobacilli.
Do we get these coccobacilli because of sexual intercourse?
Is chlamydia a STD?

chlamydia can not be seen with a normal microscope.  gonorrhea is a gram negative diplococci.  both can be tested for by PCR/DNA test from swab of discharge or urine collection (less accurate).  You probably do not have an STD given the gram reaction and morphology of G+ coccobacilli.  By the way, I am a microbiologist and lab director of a clinical lab that supports an STD clinic.  I diagnose these infections everyday.
