Safe sex for Hep B +ve
Apr 23, 2003

I'm Asian 30yr old female. I have HBSAG +ve (Got it at birth, came to know as part of prenatal screening) and my husband is -ve, got the vaccination and developed HbSAB. Should we have safe sex now???? Thanks a lot.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

If your husband has been vaccinated and has antibody, then sex should be safe with or without condoms. I would just make sure he gets his antibody checked about every 5 years or so to make sure he does not need a booster shot. Have fun! DTD

Please help!! CMV needlestick exposure
Are we at risk?
