BACTERIA

My wife has been diagnosed with stomach bacteria by an exam
done by her gastroenteroligist.  I am wondering if oral sex
can be the cause of this problem.  She has had it before and
took medication that caused her to have head aches.

The bacteria that was found is likely H Pylori - a bacteria that is associated with ulcers and inflammation.  

I am not aware of oral sex being a mode of transmission for this disease.

Treatment normally consists of an acid-blocker along with two antibiotics.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
