I am strep B positive doctors dont normally do a test for it unless you have some kind of complication i only found out with my first when i thought my waters broke they tested and found i was positve that only meant when i went into labour i had a continual drip to counter act any bactiria the baby could catch neadless to say she 2 with nothing wrong but once u have it u always will im preg with my second and im on alert for the drip with this baby as well...so dont worrie.

Generally there are no symptoms. Its a bacteria that lives naturally in your digestive tract. Sometimes it just overgrows. If you are positive they will give you IV antibiotics during delivery as it can cause health issues to the baby when born.
