  • It's a standard third trimester screen for Group B Strep.

    Sorry I can't make it clicky. If you test positive for group b strep they treat you with antibiotics during labor to minimize the chance of giving it to your baby. It is a standard test. Certainly make a point to call your OB to discuss the test and what happens in case of a positive result.
