lifespan of HBV in vagina
Dec 21, 2011

male is HBAg+/female is HBAb+(vaccinated): on an unprotected intercourse, until when/how long is her vaginal secretions capable of infecting other partner who is Ag&Ab-?

Response from Dr. McGovern

If the male partner is HBV infected, and the female partner has been vaccinated, she should be protected against infection. However, to be sure, I would certainly check a hepatitis B surface antibody to be sure the vaccine has produced protective antibodies in her.

I am not aware of any information regarding the question you ask.
