Yes strep is contagious until you have been on antibiotics for at least 24-48 hours. You should not be taking antiobitics without a proper diagnosis though as this may mask your real symptoms making it harder for the doc to diagnos what is wrong with your or it can cause a yeast infection some where if you don't eat plenty of yogart with it. If you still think it may be strep when you read this have your mom take you to urgent care to get this checked out and in the mean time don't share your glass or eating utinsils with anyone if it might be strep.
