IBS causing bad breath

My boyfriend has been complaining that I have bad breath for the past few months. I have also recently been diagnosed with IBS. Have been to the oral hygienest, and all is fine there. Could IBS be the cause, and anything I can do about it?

Dear Embarassed
see this article on the causes of bad breath: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/bad-breath/DS00025/DSECTION=causes
Try brushing your tongue too and using antiseptic mouth wash, and use probiotics three times a day. I hope this helps!
