Since my boyfriend had Esophagus and stomach ulcers and was operated and treated for it, Can he still infect me with the H Pylori Bacteria? What can I do to prevent it?

Thank you.

Did he have H pylori?
by: Kerri Knox, RN

Did your boyfriend even have H pylori? Was he tested and treated for H pylori? If not, then he should do an H Pylori Stool Test and find out.

If he does have it AND you have symptoms, then you might want to be tested also. But if you don't have symptoms of H pylori or a chronic illness, there is not the slightest reason to test yourself. H pylori is ubiquitous, and there are tons of people who are asymptomatic carriers, meaning that you have it and don't even know it. In fact, there are even good reasons to believe that as long as you have no symptoms, even if you do have H pylori, it could be beneficial to KEEP it and NOT get it treated.

H pylori has been around humans for so long that it has developed a symbiotic relationship where we benefit the bacteria and it benefits us when it's numbers are contained in small amounts that our immune system can fight off.

So, unless you have a chronic health complaint, or your boyfriend keeps getting his H pylori back over and over, and you worry that you might be a carrier that keeps reinfecting him, there is no reason to even have yourself tested.
