GBS prevention and DTD

If it makes any difference for Group B Strep.... would sex help keep it away, or bring it on stronger? Or no difference?! I want to do all I can to be negative!!!

Re: GBS prevention and DTD

I'd say no difference in my experience...

I've had it with all 3 of my babies, and with DS, I had a complicated pregnancy so no DTD for the last 4 months of my pregnancy....still had GBS

From what I understand, most people either have it or they don't. If you do have it, it is very difficult to get rid of once the bacteria are colonized. Fermented foods and live yogurt are supposed to help cleanse your colon and rectum of the bacteria.

As for DTD, I don't see how that would make any difference at all, unless you are doing something that would potentially spread bacteria from the rectum to the vagina.
