It sounds like not knowing your GBS status is complicating things. Can I ask why you refused? Its one of the less invasive tests and regardless of what the result is you can always refuse treatment. So just knowing the answer might make these kinds of decisions easier for you.
I've never heard of prolonged rupturing of membranes being one of those unless you had already tested positive. It may be helpful to know your status, but I would also want to find out how they plan to treat it during labor and if you can do Hibiclens in addition to other natural treatments should you come up +.
|There are three significant factors that place a woman at increased risk of delivering an infant who becomes ill from GBS: fever during labor, her water breaking 18 hours or more before delivery (prolonged rupture of membranes, or PROM), and/or labor or broken water before 37 weeks gestation.|
