after only ever having strep B when pregnant, I've just been told i have it again, silly question but can I have it without being pregnant?

I had swabs done before and nothing ever came back with strep B until I was pregnant with son. then again when pregnant with my daughter. Recently had a swab done to test for thrush and it came back strep B ... should I worry that im pregnant or can i just have it?

Carrying group B Strep is perfectly normal - at any time, approximate one in every four women do carry it, whether they're pregnant or not.
