Will mycoplasma hominis show on a regular vaginal culture like BV will?

In brief: No

Bv doesn't show on culture, either; diagnosis is by clue cells on microscopy.
Mycoplasma has no cell wall, and will not grow on standard culture.. It is a common found colonizer, so the presence is not a diagnosis of infection.
