This is Dr. David
it sounds like you had a urine culture which grew out group b strep
group B strep bacteria can often be found in the vaginal canal of women.
usually this bacteria can live in the vaginal canal and not cause problems.
sometimes it can be transmitted to babies during birthing.
sometimes it can get into the bladder and cause an infection.
it is more of a problem when patients get older or if their immune system is weak (from lack of sleep, poor diet, etc.)
I'm sure your doctor has given you a course of antibiotic already, correct to treat this bacteria in your urine?
