If you have had sex with someone who has hepatitis B and you were not vaccinated yes you could have caught hepatitis B. If you have had sex at all with another person in your lifetime you are at risk for HIV, syphilis and other sexually transmitted infections. Talking with your doctor about safe sex and getting testing for hepatitis B, HIV and other infections is important.
