Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?

Do any of you know if taking probiotics (how much/often) would help since Im already passing it?
I don't know about this personally, but my MW for DS told me that if you are colonized to the point of having it in your urine, it is VERY hard to get rid of.

I don't know how true that is. I just know that is what she said. She said it takes a lot longer, and more aggressive treatment (I'd imagine that means higher doses of probiotics, a more strict diet, etc) to get rid of it.
