I have a very important question for a medical lab technician concerning gram stain. I is my understanding that when a gram stain test is done on a penile discharge swab, the test is "looking" for bacteria. In fact, this test is designed to detect the presence of bacteria, and also to determine if they are gram positive or gram negative.
My question is would this test detect the presence of any sperm?
The reason I am asking is because I believe I've been leaking seminal fluid for a long time. My lab report shows 3+ gram positive cocci in clusters, 4+ gram positive cocci chains, 1+ gram positive diphtheroid like bacilli, 1+ white blood cells, and 4+ epithelial cells.
Under "organisms isolated", Enterococcus faecalis is listed.
Even with this bacteria present, I believe I was leaking seminal fluid. Is this possible? Thanks for any help with this matter.
