Worried, should I get tested?
Sep 13, 2004
Dr. Dieterich, I'm a male who received oral sex from a woman on two different occasions (same girl, both within a 3 day period). I've heard this is low risk for Hepatitis B. Should I get tested? Have there been documented cases of someone contracting Hepatitis this way? Thank you very much for your time.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
I don't know of one! It is a very low risk encounter. You should get tested and get vaccinated if you are negative, not because of the encounter, but because everyone should. Be Careful! DTD
