Response from Dr. Taylor

Both HIV and hepatitis B can be spread through sexual contact. People living with HIV may have hepatitis B, or not. Ideally you should get checked for both HIV and hepatitis B, which we can catch from the type of sexual activity you describe. Ideally you should get checked for other infections that may be spread from unprotected sex, such as syphilis.

If you do not have hepatitis B, see if you can get vaccinated.

Remember that sex without a condom can lead to catching HIV and hepatitis B, as well as other infections including syphilis.
