GBS in urine

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just found out that my urine is + for this and I am *so* discouraged about it. I had the unfortunate experience of getting IV atbs during labor with dd#1 (for a GBS+ swabbing), and we had the complete and predictable experience of trying to rid ourselves of thrush for about 10months. It just about ended our bfing experience.

I'm getting my urine re-tested; is there anything else that could be helpful in decreasing the chances for thrush down the road, assuming my urine is + and I have to go down the antibiotic road?

anyone btdt?

I've BTDT, but only in that, I had pretty much the the same exp as you (GBS+, had IV ATBs, dealt on and off with horrible thrush that made BFing really difficult, etc.). I would also like to know what I can do. I do plan to take some acidophilus before and after the birth to see if that helps.

i'd get some acidophilous or probiotics from the health food store and dose yourself while taking the antibiotics.

there is a thread on avoiding gbs in the main pregnancy forum, or perhaps it is the birth forum.
