hey! okay, im 20 years old and a female. first off, i have had h pylori and acid reflex problems for a while. i've noticed ive been getting burning in the stomach and discomfort and constant burping for a week and a half now. i also have vaginal discharge that im pretty sure is maybe part of a yeast infection. i have taken four pregnancy with in the last two weeks, my last one being taken this morning which is four days before i should get my period. they have all came back negative thanks goodness! call me paranoid but just making sure. i was wondering if h pylori can flare up again and if maybe this is all just nerves or something. thanks!

Answer by Dr Purnendu Sekhar Das  on Tue 20, Jul 2010 07:03pm:

Hi, the symptoms that you have described can be due to a re-infection with H. pylori. The H. pylori bacterium is a type of harmful microorganism that can infect the stomach and cause such diseases as peptic ulcer and gastritis. Symptoms of an infection of Helicobacter pylori bacteria, gastritis and peptic ulcer can include epigastric pain, and burning in the upper abdomen. Other symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, and pain between the shoulder blades in the back. Diagnosing an infection of H. pylori begins with taking a thorough personal and family medical history, including symptoms, and completing a physical examination. Tests like the Urea Breath Test can provide a clue to the condition. However the definitive proof of infection can be obtained through an endoscopic biopsy from the duodenum and subsequent Rapid Urease test. You need to consult your primary care physician for management of the condition. I hope this information is of help to you.
