Catching hep B from unprotected sex
Jan 15, 2012

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend only one time, the rest of the time he used a condom. He has cronic hep C but he was never tested for hep B. In case he has hep B how big are the chances that I cought it from that one sexual contact? He never finished inside. I dont know whether I am just anxious but now, 2 months later I experience stomach cramps. Thank you!

Response from Dr. McGovern

The main issue is to get tested and if you have never been exposed you should get vaccinated.

Need help to interpret these results possible HCV?
acquiring HIV and HCV simultaneously
