Apr 11, 2001

how did I get hepatitis B when I am not sexually active or a drug user

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

You can haveinfection undetected for many years.It is difficult to think in a risk factor in many cases.Any blood contact like medical interventions,many yearsago ,blood transfussions ,injections with inadequate cleansing,etc...,dental procedures,sex years ago.. What is important is to deal with the problem now.
