Mine tasted like orange soda with a hell of alot of sugar. My doctor actually gave it to me to take home and said to put it in the refrigerator because it tastes better. And remember back to when I had to have the test done with my son it did taste alot better cold.

I thought the GBS test was for Group B strep??? If so - no big deal. If you have it, they give you antibiotics before you deliver so you don't pass it to the baby. To test you they just swab the vagina and rectum on the outside. It's painless:) They usually tell you the results at your next appointment. How far along are you?

hahah lol yes it is the Group B strep test lol

i just had mine done its just a cotton swab and its quick like 2 seconds and then your done, im waiting on my results, and if i have it they just give you some antibiotics and an IV when you deliver!

When I was pregnant with Mason they did it though... But that was a different doctor, different hospital..

all they do is swab the inside of ur cooch real quick and send it to see if your body has produced group b strept or not. its very comon and can come and go throughout pregnancy. like mara said they just give u antibiotics at delivery, and thats why they do it so close is b.c it can come and go so they have a better chance of knowing. no biggie though

LOL....okay yeah. Yeah all they do is a quick swab no biggy
