There are actually lots of options to getting a negative test. You've been tested already, right? So, if the test was positive, then you can ask to be retested in labor with a rapid GBS test, or later. You can ask your provider is he/she is willing to consider a hibiclens rinse instead of antibiotics. There are no 100% proven methods to get rid of GBS but some of the things you can do are:
--Take Probiotics orally. Gbs lives in your intestines as well as the vagina. It is hard to know where it is coming from.
--Rinse your vagina with unflavored, cultured yoghurt.
--Eat garlic regularly. Can be inserted in vagina but us unappealing.
--Do a hibiclens rinse.
None of these things will completely get rid of the GBS. They may just lower the count. Be aware that if you lower the count enought to test negative that does not mean you don't carry the bacteria. It just means the count is low.
You can always refuse the antibiotics. This won't be a well-liked option, but you can do it.
