Detailed Answer:
Hi dear!
You dont need to worry because;
GBS colonization is increased in women with common vaginal infections (e.g. yeast, BV, trichomoniasis) and in women with inflammatory vaginitis.
Thus, GBS colonization likely represents a marker of a disrupted vaginal ecosystem in the gynecologic patient, and not a causal factor in vaginitis.
Nabothian cysts have no problem.
As my opinion you should keep your personal hygiene .
Use much more foods rich with vit.C and if your discharge change you need to be treated for bacterial vaginosis not for GBS.
All the best for you
