I briefly dated a man that had many partners in his past and never used protection during intercourse. He would not get tested for STD's so we ended things and never had intercourse. Here is my question:
He and I loved to bite one another when we got physical. I like to be bitten very hard. He and I bruised each other quite badly. I don't know if I had broken his skin biting him or he had broken my skin when biting me. I know he stated once that he thought he might have drawn blood when he was biting me (nipple area) and couldn't believe how hard he was biting and me not asking him to stop. I honestly wasn't aware about the transmission of Hep B through saliva and biting until recently and didn't think twice about it at that time. I don't think I ever drew blood on him, but it is possible. Like I said, he may have drawn blood on me based on what he said.
Should I be concerned? Should I get tested for Hepatits B? Opinions, please! Thanks much!
