Group B Streptococcus and failed implantation?

Hie ladies i've jst failed my 2nd IVF cycle.In 2012 when i had all my initial screening tests i was diagnosed to be a carrier of Streptococcus bacteria....they said it lives harmlessly in the vagina and bowels.Yesterday i was at work and read that it can cause early misscarriages which i have had in the past..

Has anyone else has this? Am starting to thing it may be the reason for my failed implantation.

I've been told I'm a carrier. You can buy kits to test for strep b. I had to do the test privately when I was pregnant because nhs don't take this seriously enough to test us. Push this with your clinic and see if they will test you xx


Okay thanks hu Xx


This is, really interesting I was a, carrier when pregnant with my daughter iv never once, been told it causes miscarriages thanks for this I'll be looking into this. Xxxx
