So I got unexpectedly told that I had GBS in my urine after a routine urine culture early in pregnancy. I have always declined the swab later in pregnancy, so I was not anticipating that diagnosis. I declined the anti-biotic they reccomended and did some natural remedies with my natropath and went back for another urine culture a month later to see if they worked.
And....

It came back clean! I had no bacteria whatsoever in my urine, so as of now I am GBS free. I am planning on continuing treatment to keep it away.

My midwife asked if I was interested in the swab test they do at 36 weeks and I declined it. I see no real point in doing it, I'm going to decline the Iv anti-biotic either way, and I'm planning on continuing natropathic treatment either way. Is there any reason I should do the swab test for GBS at this point?

I dont see the point, I didnt get that test this pregnancy because I wouldnt get antibiotics during labour anyway.

which remedies are you using?

I would just keep up with what you're doing and deny the test when it comes up again. Glad you're GBS free for now!

I take Colloidal Silver every day, as well as Vitamin C and a good probiotic. That was it, but it seems to be working. My Natropath said that this particular brand of Silver is really good.
