@SeaTurtle88:  did your friends have antibiotics for it before giving birth? my sister had it and they gave her antibiotics before she delivered and the baby was fine.

@jny1179:  +1. Antibiotics for GBS+ women by and large prevents infections in the infant after it’s born. Unless it’s an issue for you with recurrent UTIs, there’s no real reason to get rid of it

ETA: GBS only affects baby when giving birth, not at conception

ETA again!: sorry to hear about your friends babies getting infected – that’s pretty unusual though!

I don’t know of any way to get rid of it. :/

I tested positive and got the antibiotics during labor. I only needed one dose as my labor was very short; baby turned out just fine.
