Just to give you Mamas that are GBS+ a little hope. I had high quantative results at my 37 week GBS culture. I then treated with goldenseal suppositories (made them myself) for 3 days. We waited 2 days and did a retest. The cultures came back with quantative results of zero!

Now I am just sitting here waiting for these contractions to progress

Could you give us the details on how to prepare the suppositories?

I used cocoa butter as my base. I used probably 3 tablespoons of the butter and about 6 capsules of goldenseal. I mixed it together and used a teaspoon to "glob" it onto wax paper. I then froze it. Before bed 3 nights in a row I would insert it. I warn you all it is MESSY! But very worth it!

I bet it is worth it indeed.
my other question is: how do yuo know how long the effect will last? what if you don't go into labor for another 2 weeks? you could be colonized again. will you keep testing every week and doing the same process if your cultures come back positive until you deliver?
