Anyone starting to prepare for the GBS test? I'm going to be starting a probiotic regimen this week as well as hibiclens washes in the week leading up to my test. I've heard of garlic suppositories but I don't know if I can handle that! With the perineal massage DH started this week I don't know if I want to add any more vaginal activities, so to say.
Anyone tried this and succeeded in getting a negative result? I was GBS+ last time but I birthed with midwives last time, so was able to do hibiclens washes in labor and avoid antibiotics. I'm birthing in a hospital this time (due to financial constraints) and I won't be able to avoid the abx if I do test positive.
Would love to hear of your plans/experiences!
ETA: DH and I did forget about not having sex before the test last time. That is another thing I won't be doing this time around, probably in the week leading up to the test.
