Chances of HBV transmission receieving oral sex
May 25, 2010

i am 30 male. What is the chances of HBV transmission by receiving Oral Sex from female? I had vaccine 3 years ago with schedule 0-1-2-12 but i did not get it 12 months does. Actually i got accinated on 0- 1 month - 3 months after 1 doesBut did not get 4th does. Am I be still protected by Vaccine ?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not consider this a risk.

As for your vaccine status...since it is a bit unclear, I would recommend getting a test for surface antibodies to HBV to see if you have a response. If not a booster will probably do the trick.
