Beta Strep Negative!

So, I've been Beta Strep w/every pg. W/Little Man I took the test and it came back positive. So, my doula told me to have it redone. This time I inserted a clove of garlic every 12 or so hrs (more if it fell out) for 3 days before the test. I washed very well just before the appt, too. The second test came back negative!

This time, I did the garlic and washing and requested they not swab my rectum....I'm not delivering this baby via my rectum! Most Mama's don't realize that their rectum has even been swabbed because it's so quick and light. So, I got the results today and I am Negative!

Re: Beta Strep Negative!

Great news! I'm waiting for my results to come back. I have been negative with the previous 4, but still a little nervous. I do NOT want antibiotics!!!!
I had huge yeast/thrush problems w/o them the last time and ended up with mastitis and all kinds of bf'ing problems. I sure don't want antibiotics!

BTW, I've never heard of the garlic?!

Re: Beta Strep Negative!

Garlic works on yeast, beta strep, vaginitis, fungal issues....everything. Thing is, that after about 24 hrs you can taste it! It's not horrible, just weird. I'd never go back to those creams.

Re: Beta Strep Negative!

Thank you! Last pg I tested pos for it and I'm scared i'll test pos again- i really don't want antibiotics When do they do the strep test? I think i'll try that before i have it done...how much garlic did you insert? you said every twelve ours- so like twice a day for 3 days?
