Possible but very rare.  Blood needs to enter the blood stream, and that does not mean the vagina,anus, penis(via urethra) or mouth (did I miss anything?) that is not the blood stream.

The verdict is still out on that question but better to be safe than sorry. Hepatitis may go undetected for 20-30 years why chance it? Check with your physician but as I said, the jury is still out on that issue. I have been with my wife for 23 years and she does not have it.

Here is a study that supports little risk if any in 'normal" relationships.  I have yet to see a study where transmission occured.

I have been married to the same man for 23 years-He is negative so this should tell you the odds are very slim.Just dont share toothbrushes,razors and personal item  as well. cindy

Get vaccinated against Hep B as this can be sexually transmitted.
