Woke up yesterday and its back , had strep g again after not having it for 3 months I was put on amoxil clauv again.. It seems that after having oral sex with my bf it comes back about a week after , could this be in my vagina and I'm reinfecting myself , seems there is hardly and info out there on it..also before the strep appears I get sores in my mouth 3 days before the strep comes back, my question is how is this treated ? i want it out of my body..I'm a 41 year old with no health issues..
