Hello Anon,

It is good that you want to inform her doctor. The sooner the better. Good luck.

Dear Anon,

Thank you for seeking our help with your concerns about H pylori and sharing your question..

H pylori infection occurs when a type of bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infects your stomach. This usually happens during childhood.

It can be contagious. H. pylori bacteria may be passed from person to person through direct contact with saliva, vomit or fecal matter. H. pylori may also be spread through contaminated food or water.

Reducing your risk factors is the best way to prevent the H pylori infection. Risk factors are related to living conditions such as:

Living in crowded living conditions, where many people share the same house.

Living without a reliable clean source of water. Having a reliable supply of clean, running water helps reduce the risk of H. pylori.

People living in developing countries, where crowded and unsanitary living conditions may be more common, have a higher risk of H. pylori infection.

If someone you live with has H. pylori, you're more likely to also have H. pylori.

Anon, since H. pylori is contagious and especially with your wife being pregnant, she needs to call her doctor right away and let them know that you were diagnosed.

Will you have her call her doctor?
