HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Hep Question
      07/13/06 02:54 PM

I was tested neg for HIV but now I am worried about hep b cause I Am in Asia and hep b is pretty common here according to the CDC.

Since I always use condoms is there reason to test for hep b? Should I be scared of this?

What I don't understand is why there hasn't been any studies to see how effective hep b prevention is with condoms. Is it because there's a vaccine? It's also funny how this vaccine's not routinely given until recently. As such I haven't gotten it that's why I am scared.
