i'm just wondering how many women these days know about group B strep an infection which can in some cases cause miscarriage or carry a danger once baby is born. although its been known about for many yrs when i was preg in the late 90's it was never mentioned to me and i wasnt told for 17 pounds i could be tested for it. as far as i know at least in scotland the test is now offered for free on the nhs and i will be mentioning to my midwife ive tested positive and been treated for it while i wasnt preg ( antiiotics is the treatment) but i guess there is always a risk of it returning and it needs treated during labour for mum and baby sake. if this condition hasnt been mentioned to u then its worth reading up on and getting tested. i remember reading it was responsible for up to 50% of mc's which could have been easily prevented by detection and antibiotic treatment.
