Is largely due to going down. 👀
Group B strep is commonly found living as a relatively harmless denizen of the gut, vagina, and the mouth. It is not motile, meaning the little devil can’t move on its own, meaning it has to be placed ON the urethra to cause a UTI, if you get what I’m saying, here. *cough*
This is one point I ain’t makin’ with a GIF, so y’all will have to use your imaginations. Put 2 and 2 together and make 4, savvy?
It can also be contracted through contact with contaminated medical equipment (catheter).
If you would like to avoid this form of UTI, I highly recommend both parties brush their teeth and *ahem* tongues very thoroughly with activated charcoal.
If you already have it…I’m still working on a cure for this nasty little devil. It isn’t particularly virulent in the bladder, typically, but it’s as persistent as the cute guy at your front door trying to sell you a new TV/internet bundle.
By all rights, raw garlic, oregano oil, ascorbic acid, and OLE should do the job, but I’ve got 4 people right now watching everyone else with all kinds of other UTIs get cured, and their tests strips are still turning a faint but inexorable purple.
If you’ve got it, avoid sugar, alcohol, do some charcoal cleansing to boost your immune system, and stay on OLE, and raw garlic or oregano oil to keep yourself virtually asymptomatic. Also, contact me on FB to be part of a test group for curing this thing, if you want.
