In brief: Probable UTI

Group B beta strep is commonly carried in the vagina, usually without harm, except if present during labor, it can cause serious infections in the baby.
However, it sometimes causes UTI as well. If you have typical UTI symptoms (urineary frequency, urgency, burning) or high white blood cells in the urine, you should be treated. If not, maybe retest and don't worry if neg. Discuss w/ your doctor.
