i don,t knowww
Feb 21, 2009

i shared a drink with a friend who had sex with a guy who is hepa b positive.i haven't completed my hepa b vaccine. I'll be receiving my third dose this coming month. is it possible that i'm infected? what kind of test should I do?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You are not at risk but your friend should be seen by her physician to check to see if she has been immunized in the past and if so - does she have protective antibodies. Hepatitis B can be transmitted by sexual intercourse.
