OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether colonization with GBS in a previous pregnancy is associated subsequently with adverse obstetric and perinatal outcomes.
METHODS: A retrospective study was undertaken comparing pregnancy complications of patients with and without colonization with GBS in a previous pregnancy from 1988 to 2006. Women with a positive GBS culture in the current pregnancy, women lacking prenatal care and multiple gestations were excluded from the analysis.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Adverse obstetric and perinatal outcomes including premature rupture of membranes, intrapartum fever, chorioamnionitis and perinatal mortality.
RESULTS: Out of 184,266 singleton deliveries, 230 (0.12%) were of patients with a positive GBS culture in their previous pregnancy. Previous GBS colonization was not found to be associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes such as PROM (9.1 vs. 6.8%; P = 0.16), intrapartum fever (1.3 vs. 2.2%; P = 0.72) and chorioamnionitis (1.3 vs. 0.8%; P = 0.29).
CONCLUSIONS: GBS colonization in a previous pregnancy is not associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes in the current pregnancy.
