Nov 12, 2009

how do i know if my partner was vaccinated against hepatitis b as a child so i can know if it is safe to sleep with her?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You and your partner can both get tested for hepatitis B to know if you have ever been exposed or vaccinated in the past. It is a simple blood test.
