My husband was diagnosed with hep b virus. He failed to tell me that he was exposed to it with his ex-wife. what are the possibilities of me contracting the disease? I am very concerned about this.

Ask your doctor to test you for hepatitis B. It is easy to catch this infection by having sex with someone with hep b or even by living with someone with hep B.
