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