IS ORAL SEX WILL SPREAD HEPA B
Nov 15, 2013

Hi Doctor, I was diagnosed with Hepa B last Oct 2013 but my bf also undergo with a test and he got negative result. We did notperform sex anymore as I have Hepa B but we had oral sex. Can this be a way of transferring the virus to my BF?I am worried.I will have test again for hepa B profile maybe 2nd week of Nov.because as of now I dont know if It is acute or chronic hepa B.The only result i got is this: Examination: HBsAg (ELISA) Result: 1.939 REACTIVE Cut-Off Value: 0.105 Looking forward for your reply soon.

Response from Dr. Taylor

Yes hep B may be spread via oral sex. Have your bf get evaluated and if he does not have hep B, vaccinated.

I cannot tell from the test results you provide, if this is acute or chronic hep B. Talk with your doctor about further testing including hep B DNA and ALT along with HIV testing. All best to you.
