Vaginal infection?: By itself, this results don't tell anything. It doesn't sound particularly abnormal, but the gram stain must be interpreted in light of your symptoms, whether the smear also shows "clue cells", the pH of your vaginal fluid, what your examination showed, and other test results. Discuss with your doctor.
