Thank you ahead of time for answering. Long story short 3 months ago I had unprotected vaginal sex for 10-15 minutes with a woman of unknown status. I got tested for all stds including HIV (3 months after ) but my old dr did not recommend that I test for hep b. My main question is how likely is it that I contacted hep b from this one time exposure? I know that hep c is not efficiently spread via vaginal sex , but would like to know about hep b.
Ps I am goig to a new dr to request hep testing. But I am goin crazy . Please help
Depend on the HBV status of your sex partner the risk can go from minimum to maximum.
Theoretically HBV is 100 time more contagious then HIV, but you shoul not worry to much even you got HBV you have 90% chances to eradicate it in 6 months.
