Question: I am 37 weeks pregnant and believe I have lost my mucous plug. Is intercourse still OK or do I need to worry about infection? My water hasn't broken. I was Group B strep positive in another pregnancy, but I don't yet have my test result back for this pregnancy.

You need not worry about infection. Intercourse is okay. If your test result is positive for Group B streptococcus, you need to take antibiotics again during delivery.
