Please help me put this into perspective.
Aug 23, 2005

Dr. Dietrich,

I am usually very safe. However, this time I am a very panicky. I am dating this women who happens to have Hep B. We were fondling, massaging etc. when suddenly she starting fondling my butt hole, we had washed our hands before, nevertheless, this lasted less than a minute when we decided that she should put on a latex glove before pursuing this further, which she did. The probing then lasted for another minute or so and I was not comfortable anymore so we decided to do something else. The next day, sorry to be graphic, when I was wiping I saw a very small dot of blood. This is when I started to get worried, I immediately checked her fingers, she thought that was paranoid there was no fresh cuts or sores just some scabs and peeling skin. What would be the risk of me acquiring Hep B from her only from this act. I have taken the Hep B fist two shots 5 years ago but never completed the third dose. I have already made an appointment to get those shots. Tested for Hep B & C 3 months ago negative and want to stay that way. Thank you for your help.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Relax, that is a virtually no risk activity. You are doing the right thing by getting vaccinated. DTD
