Hi! I'm a male and I have received unprotected oral sex from a female sex worker. 16 days after this exposure, I had some blood work done, including liver enzymes. My ALT level was the only liver enzyme that was mild elevated, 44 u/l, and the upper normal limit used by the lab is 41 u/l. I was also tested for Hep B and C at the same opportunity, and both were negative. I know 16 days is too early, but at least we can rule them out as a probable cause acting before the exposure. Since the exposure, I have been freaking out about HIV, Hepatitis B and C. I didn't even know Hep B could be transmitted through saliva before the exposure. I have headaches everyday, abdominal discomfort in the upper quadrant, night sweats, sore throat.
Do you guys know of anyone who got hepatitis B or C from insertive unprotected oral sex?
and try to remain calm. It is easy to loose a mind going through all this..
If it helps you I had 50 HIV tests over 5 year period.. Before that on this forum they told me my black hairy tongue was oxydative stress related to my HBV.. That is of course is reflective of the US health care system where most doctors have no idea what they are doing when it comes to infections. So thanks god to these forums, we can pretty much treat and test our selves, as sick as it sounds it is true.. at least in my experience..
