Strep B in Semen
     Do you find Strep B in men by testing their semen?  Is this the same strep B that women carry and can it be passed sexually from one person to another?

Hi,

Many people carry group B strep bacteria in their bodies without developing infection or illness. However, the bacteria can become deadly to people with weakened immune systems and in newborns. In adults, group B strep usually causes no symptoms. In rare cases, it can lead to serious bloodstream infections, urinary tract infections, skin infections, and pneumonia.  Adults can carry the bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, genital tract, or urinary tract.

Group B strep infection is diagnosed by a laboratory test of blood or spinal fluid. Treatment is usually with antibiotics given intravenously.

Take care and regards.
