could I get hepatitis B or C through protected sex ??
I had protected sex in china with a sex worker ( where hepatitis is common ) 4 times
1- I wore the condom before any act then I had vaginal sex for nearly 10 minutes
2- I wore another condom then I had vaginal sex for nearly 20 minutes
3- next day I met the same woman and i had protected vaginal sex for 10 minutes
4 protected vaginal sex for 5 minutes
there wasnt any genital contact without protection and no oral
but I think some of her vagina fluids touched the base of the penis but not the urethra
am I at risk ??
I got tested at 6 weeks mark for both and all came back negative
my biggest fear is hep B
am planing to get tested (HBsAG) at 9 weeks If it came back negative can I consider it as conclusive result ??
No, you are absolutely not at risk. It is good that you used protection. Hepatitis C and B can not be transmitted through protected sex. It is just impossible. All the details that you described don't matter in this situation. You do not have either hepatitis C or B.
The only way hepatitis C can be transmitted is blood to blood contact. Some of infected blood have to get into your bloodstream for you to get the disease.
Hope that you can relax now and not to worry about hepatitis C any longer.
Even with Hep B there has to be an entrance into the body. Our skin is really good protection against any water soluble substance like body fluids. Since all of your orifices were covered I don't see how you could have been infected.
