Hi! Congrats for your exellent work here!
My question is the following...
A friend of mine which will probably become my boyfriend told me that he has a negative HbsAg and that his mother gave it to him during his birth.
He has also told me that by having sex without protection , he can trasmit something to the woman that will not make her sick, and that IF the woman gives birth to a child , the child could carry the virus.
I have read on the internet that when a person has negative HbsAg then he cannot trasmit the virus.
But if his anti-HBs is negative? This means acute hepatitis?
I don't feel very comfortable asking him about all these...u know.. it is not polite.
If i make the vaccine ( cause i don't have it done) will i be 100% protected?
Is there a chance, somebody that has negative HBsAg to turn into positive after years?
i was tested a year ago and the results showed antiHBs negative.
So i guess i need vaccination.
You are definately right, i shouldn't feel that way.I must discuss this with him cause it is a serious condition.
But if somebody has HBsAg negative , can this turn into positive after years by itself?
Should i ask him to get tested again?
