Group A streptococcus GAS is a rare but serious cause of postpartum and gynecological infections. There are no follow-up or prophylaxis guidelines for women with previous GAS genital infection. We aimed to evaluate the incidence of long-term gynecological carrier state in patients with a history of genital GAS infection.
