What Can I Do If I Test Positive For Group B Strep
Antibiotics in labor: When a woman has group b strep we start antibiotics when she goes into labor. These antibiotics pass through the placenta and protect the baby during delivery. You can also expect more careful assessments of baby after delivery and possibly needing to stay at least 24 hours. If you don't get at least two doses of antibiotics before delivery, you may need to stay for further monitoring. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Once u test positive for mono do u always test positive? I tested positive and have symptoms again. How is this?
Family practice : Tell your dr if he isn't aware you have had it before. Have your dr order an ebstein barr titer.

I took a urine chlamydia test I've received a message today to tell me they are referring me to pregnancy with chlamydia, I do not no if I am pregnant so how do they? Would the chlamydia test detect pregnancy?
Hmmm....: Maybe they do urine pregnancy tests on all women getting screened for STD's. Maybe all women screening positive for chlamydia go to the same clinic, labeled the "Pregnant with Chlamydia" clinic. Maybe they're just clairvoyant, or maybe it's a mistake. A chlamydia test by itself does not test for pregnancy. Perhaps the best thing to do is just to call them and ask. ...Read more
