During my 1st pregnancy my placenta was infected with gbs and i lost the baby at 31wks. I am on my 2nd pregnancy when can I be treated for gbs?

During my 1st pregnancy my placenta was infected with gbs and i lost the baby at 31wks. I am on my 2nd pregnancy when can I be treated for gbs?

Not until 35wks: All pregnant women should get tested for GBS, group B streptococcus, at 35wks. It's not an infection; just colonizes the vagina.

Can't do anything about it before labor. No symptoms. ...Read more
