High sugar fruits (pineapple, papaya, etc) might be seen this way also. ...Read more

No benefit has been demonstrated except to those who sell it. ...Read more

I did an hvs test and the result is epithelial cell : numerous, pus cell 3 -4hpf yeast + others nill.when cultured it yielded scanty growth of candida?

I did an hvs test and the result is epithelial cell : numerous, pus cell 3 -4hpf yeast + others nill.when cultured it yielded scanty growth of candida?

Yeast? Other? STD?: Your test results are mixed. Seeing any by microscopy, with pus cells, suggests overgrowth and active infection, but "scant growh" is slightly against it. If symptoms typical of a yeast infection (vaginal irritation and itching, usually little discharge), treatment for yeast probably will help. Pus cells can suggest other infections, e.g. STD. Discuss with your doctor or clinic. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm 37.3 weeks pregnant. Got HVS test done. Culture result shows high candida species (non albicans). What does that mean? Is it dangerous?

Candida species: Assuming that you had vaginal testing for the presence of Herpes virus to predict vertical transmission to your baby, this is only 50% sensitive altho highly specific. Why the specimen was cultured for yeast is unclear, but non-albicans species can also produce vulvovaginitis, altho not commonly. This should be easy to eliminate if your obstetrician feels it is relevant. It is not dangerous. ...Read more
