Home Group B Streptococcus Test

Nowadays, the NHS does not run routine tests for Group B Strep Bacteria. This is surprising, especially when you consider that on average approximately 700 new-born babies are infected each year in Great Britain alone. As a result, approximately 40 new-born babies are left with serious long term mental and/or physical problems.

 For parents who are keen to undertake a home Group B Strep Test, Fertility2U supply a home screening test kit which allows parents to carry out a quick test in the comfort of their own home. 

How it Works

Unlike other tests which are available, our Group B Strep Test is a ‘Gold Standard’ ECM test which is processed in a fully CPA accredited laboratory. This is the largest independent provider of clinical laboratory diagnostic services in the UK.

The test must be performed while you’re pregnant, and the swab is sent across to our laboratory which will test the swab for bacteria. They will send you the results as soon as possible.

If you choose to buy your Group B Strep Test kit from the experts here at Fertility2U you can take advantage of our next day delivery service, which comes at no extra cost. We recommend taking a sample between 35-37 weeks – this allows us to get the test results back to you before the due date.

If you need to speak with our online doctor simply call us today on 0182 781 8321 or complete our quick and easy contact form and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
