H. Pylori bacteria infection
I tested positive for H. pylori infection in my stomach and I'm put on antibiotics for 2 weeks. Is it a contagious infection, can I kiss my partner without transmitting the infection or should I wait until my course of antibiotics is done.

No, it's not contagious. Kissing does not transmit H.pylori infection. You don't need to wait for 2 weeks. Don't worry, go ahead and have a good time.
