Reculture: See your physician to reculture the area as the false negative rate is high for these tests. Appropriate treatment will then be prescribed. Physician may start treatment for yeast infection while culture results are pending.

YES: You need to get labs & a culture done again and asap while your symptoms begin to heal by themselves. You could be carrying a chronic yeast or BV infection.
