Testing for H Pylori

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-03-02

Question:
I've been reading that many women have the same question as mine - which is very helpful to me - How to prepare (or try to) against HG in future pregnancies. I survived it once and have a gorgeous son. The second time was much worse and we ended the pregnancy. Before we give up, I think we need to research more. After reading on your site, the sooner the better seems to be the motto for treatment AND I'd never heard of H pylori bacteria. Is this a test to be done before getting pregnant or once you find out you're pregnant?

Answer:
You can have the H pylori test at any time, however to receive more specific information you should call our toll free number available throughout North America at 1 800 436-8477
