spreading hp

How do you catch Hp? From your mother when she kisses you? From brothers and sisters as a small child? From sexual partners as adults (kissing)? From dirty water (fecal contamination)? From animals? Who knows???

spreading hp

Post by tanyaval »

i was infected with hp a couple months ago, I also just had a baby 6 months ago and have been hugging her and kissing her since she was born. I'm scared that I gave her the bacteria. I can not imagine her going through what I went through. Should i have her tested? shes only 6 months:(

Good News: In a study of 60 mothers in Belgium, mothers did not transmit Hp to their babies in the first year. To be careful, just make sure you have good dental hygiene. If there is any doubt, a stool antigen test can check for Hp in a baby (if it was me, I would have this done after I myself was cured). Adult family members can have a UBT. Probably breast milk protects up to 6 months after feeding stops.
Check the link below for information on hard-to-treat cases. Then search the forums for questions and answers similar to yours.
