this is A from India!

My question is, I am a teenager, you know, i have that "girls appetite" :)

Is it advisable to test after each episode, even if you are protected with condoms and they did not fail?

I mean if i continue to take care and use them all the while, should i be tested?

Thanx a ton...god bless you

Response from Dr. McGovern

Use condoms each and every time. Would also get hepatitis B vaccine.

Anti HBS Positive
Hep C 3a
