I recently had sexual contact with a girl I later found out to be infected with chronic hepatitis B. There was nno vaginal intercourse, but she performed oral sex on me, and I fingered her (which had some small cuts on them at the time).
When I found out, I immediately had my blood tested to ensure that I was still immune (I had the hep B vaccine as a small child). My blood levels of antibody were still far above the effective level to be considered immune.
I am still concerned about a few things:
- Is there ANY risk of me contracting the diesase?
- Even though I am immune, is there any possibility of me passing the virus on to future partners who may not be immune? (either in the near or long term)
I don't want to be faced with telling every possible future gf/partner that I have been exposed, but would also feel incredibly guilty if I ended up passing this on to someone.
