Response from Dr. Fried

None of the activities you describe is extremely high risk for infection with hepatitis B or C. If you are still worried, a simple blood test will prove that you are not infected. However, if you are becoming sexually active, you should get counseling about future prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. The HBV vaccine is also recommended. Also, don't share razors with anyone.
