Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)

Has anyone notice they constantly get the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria? I notice I get this a lot. Anyone heard of a correlation between the two?  I have had IBS with constipation and without. I had this since I was 13 and I am now 46.   I never really understood what causes it and all the meds do not relieve my symptoms. They just cause sometimes painful side effects.

Hello and welcome,

There is no correlation that I am aware of between an H. pylori infection and IBS.

Can I ask which meds have you tried for your constipation?

I have tried linzess.I remembered that cause severe cramping. I can’t remember the other ones. It was so long ago. I stop taking those meds.  I just live with the constipation.  I also  do over the counter stool softeners, miralax’ enemas and stuff like that.  I can say it is better than the other problem I had when I was younger where I had accidents and needed to know where a bathroom was or I would freak out.

Just so you are aware, there are different treatment options available now if you ever want to speak to your doctor about that.
