No, if it works it actually gets rid of the bacteria. My midwife says if you really do it religiously it works most of the time.

Don't shoot me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is the method of choice for getting rid of GBS in western Europe. She said she's not sure why the US won't embrace it. I suspect it's because they have to trust you to do it when our preferred method is to pump you full of drugs.
