If the culture & sensitivity test shows that i have many gram positive rods seen. do this mean i have infection?
Positive cultures: The interpretation of a culture of a bodily fluid depends on many factors. Poor technique in fluid collection or processing can lead to false positive results.

Is there a culture sensitivity test for bv? Some doctors have said there is a test and other doctors disagree.
I took a urine analysis and culture sensitivity CT GT test some of my results are still pending but what bothers me is they showed moderate bacteria?
Here are some ...: Before taking antibiotics, a detailed general / urinary history and urinalysis are minimally required for suspecting UTI if you have not had recurrent UTI. But, if you know when a UTI is coming by history after prior evaluation, both nitofurantoin & sulf/trimethorpim remain the most practical yet effective drugs for everyday UTI without antibiotics overuse / abuse.

My throat culture & sensitivity c/s report says "organism: moderate growth streptococcus viridans group" is this normal, i've white coating on tongue?
Possible fungal...: Overgrowth. If you have cultures, you are probably already on an antibiotic for something. S. Viridens is a common oral bacteria that we all have on some level. Yours may be higher than normal but the white on your tongue could be candidiasis from a lack of "regular" bacteria that keep it down.
