Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. H.pylori infection can cause gastritis, peptic ulcer and stomach cancer. Gastritis and peptic ulcer can present with abdominal pain, blood vomiting or black stools. Stomach cancer can present with abdominal pain, loss of appetite, loss of weight, blood vomiting or black stools or anemia. There are many different causes of abdominal pain. So the abdominal pain you had a month ago could be due to any cause and without testing it is difficult to say whether it was due to H.pylori reinfection. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
