Are you sure that he didn't give it to you first?

Hi Kimberley,

I'm going to give you the same two links that I give everyone else who asks questions like this. Please read my pages on:

Is H Pylori Contagious

Must Read Answer about Questions Regarding H Pylori Being Contagious

and then ask yourself why you think that he's negative for the bacteria or that he didn't give it to you in the first place? Did he 'screen' anyone else that he's kissed for H pylori before he kisses them? Well, if he's so worried about this, then he should- because there is ZERO reason to be worrying about this. He may ALREADY HAVE IT. And if he doesn't he is going to be exposed to it a hundred times in the next few years.

In addition, how many times did you 'exchange saliva' BEFORE you found out that you had H pylori? If he's going to get it, he's already been exposed anyway. PLEASE stop freaking out about this and just live your life. And I'm just letting you know now that if you have H pylori and you have already had symptoms, I highly suspect that you are eating sugar and processed food, otherwise you would not have even contracted this bacteria in the first place.

If you just want to live a normal life, then I suggest that you start eating organic whole foods and stop eating processed foods and foods that are bad for you, because your habits are already setting you up for a lifetime of health problems, whether you get rid of the H pylori or not.

We never exchanged saliva I told him right away. I just want to know if its safe for a simple kiss on the lips

You're missing the point
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Nothing is safe, my dear, and besides you're missing the point. Did you kiss other guys before you knew that you were positive? What about them? Are you going to not exchange saliva until you get tested negative again (one to two months- not just when you are done with antibiotics).

If you have to get 3 to 4 regimens of antibiotics because the regimen keeps failing, are you going to wait 6 months or longer? What if HE ALREADY HAS IT anyway (1/2 the population does and most don't know it)? What if you get it back again after getting rid of it and you don't know it?

My point being that 1/2 the population has H pylori and you can get H pylori anytime. You can also get it from some foods and beverages. Are you going to get tested everytime before you kiss someone? Are you going to have everyone be tested before you allow them to kiss you?

If you are not going to do all of that, and no one is because it's ridiculous and impossible and STILL won't protect you from H pylori, then there is not a single reason in the world to not kiss your boyfriend!

Both he and you are GOING to get exposed to it again and again, by kissing ANYONE (you may have got it from your MOTHER or FATHER kissing you throughout childhood!)or by eating or drinking. As I said, the BEST way for someone to protect themselves is to stop eating crap, minimize stress and strengthen the immune system.

But if you feel the need to only kiss people when you test negative (then you should get tested every year or so since you can easily get re-infected) to test everyone that you ever plan to kiss (since most people who have H pylori don't even show symptoms), then you are welcome to do so. But otherwise, not kissing your boyfriend is pointless, although I'm not going to tell you it's 'safe'. Nothing is 'safe' and there are risks to everything.

This study even shows that infected Infected Mothers often give H pylori to their infants.


Point being. Focus on improving your health and getting rid of your H pylori and have both you and your boyfriend tested after your treatment is done.
