That test is to see if your going to go into labor anytime in the next to weeks- It doesn't MAKE you go into labor- If you got the test done, they should have, or will call u soon with the results, that test is VERY accurate, I think 99% correct.

I'm sorry PP was right, I was thinking of the WRROONNG test- So any info I said, TOTALLY disregard..damn I've been off my game today! so sorry- I'm in idiot! anyways- I have never heard of that test causing labor, or the results linking to when labor will begin....I tested at 36 weeks and I was negative- but my sisters and mother were all positive, so I asked to be giving the antibiotics just in case, not sure if my doctor will listen thou.
Again, I'm in idiot- disregard my earlier statement.

Group B strep is a common digestive flora that can be found in that vagina. Regardless of wheather you test positive for GBS, you can still pass it on to your child (thogh thoes rates are extreemly small). Oth thoes who do get GBS and get sick durign delivery, 10% die (Gaskin, 2003).
If you test positive there are things you can do (even before the GBS test) to reduce your chances of a poitive and reduce chances of spreedign GBS to your child at this time. A great resourse for self treatmetn of GBS can be foudn at (http://www.gentlebirth.org/archives/gbsAlt.html). However, takign probiodics throuout your pregancy will help you to keep a health balance of good and bad gut flora.
