Dec 29, 2001

and if non reactive,please consider the vaccine that can protect you from HBV infectionhello Doctor Thank you for all the work you do. I had oral sex encounter about 12 weeks ago. I have no symptoms. I got tested for HEP B after 10 weeks and all 3 tests were negative. My doctor said something would have shown after 4-8 weeks, however HEP B hotline says it can take up to 6 month I am confused. please advise Thank you

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

Yes,you should have the tests repeated after 6 months,and if non reactive,consider the vaccine that can protect you from future infection.
