hepatitis a,b,c from this encounter

Hi Dr,

I want to ask do i need to test for this encounter for hepatitis a,b,c in massage parlor in asia.

1) handjob
2) french kissing
3) sucking nipple
4) body to body rubbing. She with pants/panties on. her fluid might contact my penis head.
5) She with pants on and rubbing my penis until i ejaculate. Position is her vaginal area rub on my penis.

I have tested hepatitis a & b from my last massage activities 17 days.It is negative but i don't have immune to it. I have been to many massage activities. Do i need to get tested again ?

Welcome to our Forum.  Your question raises some important points.  Viral hepatitis can caused by a variety of different viruses which have different ways they are transmitted.  Of the three major causes of viral hepatitis, only hepatitis B is regularly transmitted through sexual activity.  for hepatitis B sexual transmission occurs through genital or rectal intercourse, not through rubbing, kissing, oral sex, nipple sucking or masturbation.  Hepatitis B can also be spread through injection of infected material deep into tissue.  

Hepatitis C is almost always transmitted through injection of infected material deep into tissue.  Rarely it cans be transmitted through receptive rectal intercourse.  Otherwise it is not transmitted through sex.

Hepatitis A virus is transmitted almost entirely when persons ingest/swallow material contaminated with stool from an infected person. The may occur during sex if there are activities such as rectal intercourse followed by oral sex or oral-anal sexual contact but otherwise sexual transmission of hepatitis A is very rare.

In your case, none of the activities you describe put you at any risk for hepatitis.  You do not need to worry and do not need testing.

You can reduce your future risk for hepatitis B and hepatitis A through vaccination.  Highly effective vaccine to prevent these infections are widely available.

I hope my comments are helpful.  EWH

I am sorry, I do not know what the values you mention mean.  All tests report out values and values under a specified cut off are negative.  You need to look at the report carefully to interpret this value.  

I doubt that you acquired hepatitis from the exposure you described.  EWH

Please re-read my reply.  I do not know how to interpret this result from an unknown test.  You should ask your doctor. EWH

Doctor told me its is fine. The HBsab is the antibody when i taken the vaccine when i was young since i dint take it when im adult.But i did not know whether i take the vaccine or not. The first test show no immune should be their range is diff since i take from diff lab.
Btw, does any illness like hepatitis cause delay for hiv antibody? i taken the test at 83 days and 89 days from my last activities. It show hiv 1/2 antibody screening. But when i email them, they say they use combi test. Can i conclude? your reply will end the thread.

Theexposures you describe did not put you at meanigful risk for STD.  This will be the final answer to your repetitive and anxiety-driven questions:

No hepatitis does not delay development of HIV antibodies. Believe your test results, they are conclusive.

Your VDRL is conclusive as well.

This thread is over.  EWH
