Why am I Group B Strep positiveé The group B strep bacteria is common in theintestine and lower genital tract. It is not necessarily going to make you sick. The was certainly concerned about it.He's talking about antibiotics, while I'm barely supposed to touch cold medicine. It can cause a UTI in women, which is alreadya bad enough problem for pregnant women since they are peeing for two. The group B strepcan give you a urinary tract infection. The problem is that it can make the baby sickif the kid comes into contact with it.
This is not like one of those social diseases,righté While all natural sounds nice, I like livingin a world with antibiotics. Otherwise, this is the sort of thing that could cause reallybad problems during childbirth, which is why five in a hundred women did die every timethey had a kid. It's that badé If you're pregnant, it can infect the placentaand risk the kid that way, or give them sepsis, which can kill them or kill you if untreated. Now I'm worried that he did not give meany antibiotics.
If you have group strep B, they usually giveyou antibiotics during labor so that you do not give it to the kid. If you had an activeUTI, they'd give you antibiotics for that now. How do they know I have ité The finds out if you have it by swabbingyou down there and sending it to the lab to check for it. In your case, the test was positive. Well, if it was negative, that's one thingI would not have to worry about on top of everything else. How did I get ité
You can spread it by wiping back to frontinstead of front to back, pushing the butt bacteria into the lady bits. So my kid could get a serious infection becauseof how I wiped my bottom. And I'm about to start having to wipe baby bottoms a dozentimes a day. It is one more reason to wash your hands thoroughly.I know I said it can cause sepsis, but it is way more likely just to cause pneumoniafor the baby than sepsis, and only rarely meningitis. Brand new babies on ventilators are no lessstressful a concept than blood borne infections.
Do I have to do antibioticsé That or a Csection so the baby does not comeinto contact with the bacteria. I'll take the antibiotics instead, thankyou.
Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy
I want your opinion of vaginal discharge duringpregnancy. If you have a sudden white mucus plug comeout, you're about to end the pregnancy and go into labor. I'm not that far along. The vaginal discharge will go back to whiteand thick after you ovulate. If you conceive, there may be drops of blood mixed in, or justbrown or orange streaks in the discharge. I'm a little farther along than that. The vaginal discharge usually increases involume during pregnancy, starting after implantation.
However, it remains white and thick throughoutunless something is wrong. I know any red blood in vaginal dischargeis dangerous, whether a sign of a miscarriage or uterine tear or something else only the will know. When you are pregnant, any bleeding is a reasonto go to the ER. Fortunately, I'm not seeing that type ofvaginal discharge. You'll normally see more white and thickvaginal discharge. Some women wear menstrual pads when pregnant to contain it. That sounds fishy to me. I didn't thinkI'd need diapers until after I had the kid.
If the vaginal discharge smells fishy or likevinegar, you have a yeast infection. I can't even take a pain reliever rightnow. What do I do about a yeast infectioné It is safe to use over the counter yeast infectiontreatment when pregnant, and you may need several. Pregnancy throws off your pH balanceand makes yeast infections much more likely. Glad I don't have that fishy smell downthere, then. It is thick and offcolor though. If it is green or yellow, you may have a bacterialovergrowth. That's dangerous during pregnancy. It could make things smell, and you do wantto talk to a about it. However, if
there are any lesions, itching and other signsof a social disease, you have to talk to a . Technically, life is sexually transmitted. A sexually transmitted disease contractedbefore or during pregnancy puts the kid at risk, and it may be flaring up worse whilepregnant because pregnancy compromises the immune system. Yes, I'd talk to the if I was worriedabout it, but I am not. Then you'll just see more white and thickdischarge. It would have increased in volume
as the cervix thickened and rose up from thelow point after ovulation. But not as high as it would be if I wasn'tpregnant. That's where a lot of the mucus is comingfrom, but know that it will become dry if you're dehydrated just as when you'renot pregnant.
