In brief: GBS

Many adults may carry group b streptococcus(gbs) in their body with symptoms.
However some adults can develop a urinary tract infection (UTI) from gbs. Continue to see your doctor for treatment of your uti.

In brief: Yes

While GBS is occasionally found in the female genital tract without symptoms or problems, it can cause a UTI.
If you have symptoms and a positive urine culture, I would treat it.
