Hope to find some informations about hepatitis. I'm bisexual man and had multiple sex parterns. On 20th sept( after a week of sexual active) had blood test for most of the STD. Results are negatvie, the follwoing is Hep B results.
Hep B Surface Ab(Anti-Hbs) - Negative(<=10mIU/mL)*
Hep B Surface Ag(HBsAg) - Negative*
I had first dose of Hep B vaccanice on 4th Oct. I have doubt how long its takes to develope detectable antibodies to Hepatitis virus A,B and C after the infection occurs?
actually there is a vaccine for hcv but it is not possible to know if it works because immune system cannot prevent infection due to the hcv virus mutating all the time, the only thing that might be achieved by a hcv vaccine is maybe a decrease of cronic cases but there is no way to know by trials so the project has been stopped
I gave test for Hep A and C, here Doc said they have vaccnice for hep A only, If i"m negative for Hep A then'll take the vaccine but I'm already in Hep B vaccnice will it be matter if take both the vaccine?
vaccine for hepatitis A is not important at all, it is never cronic and never makes damage to the liver if you are not infected with other cronic hepatitis viruses at the same time, go somewhere else to get hbv vaccine it is crazy they don t have it, isn t it available at pharmacy why are you looking for it at the doctor
hepatitis A is nothing to worry about it is hbv which is dangerous
