Urine Culture Group B Streptococcus isolated


Q: For the past two weeks I have had lower abdominal and lower back pain. Urine culture finally came back with Group B Streptococcus isolated. I was prescribed Augmentin. Is this a proper antibiotic for this? Also, should I be concerned about this diagnosis? Could it mean I have an underlying, more serious problem? I am an otherwise healthy 27 year old female. Is this what they test for during 3rd trimester in pregnancy, then you get antibiotics during delivery? I was positive and got the iv antibiotics just last August. Is it possible that those antibiotics actually made the bacteria come back in greater numbers, and cause this? I have had UTIs, but just the typical kind found in a urinalysis. (burning with urination) Up until now, haven't had a UTI in 4 years. Thank you!!
