what's my risk
« on: April 07, 2016, 01:55:04 pm »
A week ago i had one exposure to my BF i performed oral to him and he ejaculate in my mouth but i spit it immediately and regular kissing

whats my risk for extracting HBV ? I didn't take the vaccine but my Dr. mistakenly gave me a boost dose on 2012 without the vaccine, how much protection can that give me ? my exposure has been a week ago and since then I've been having horrible nausea and epigastric discomfort and muscle weakness and joint pain

my anxiety level is approaching maximum

Here is a link to the Center for Disease Control Hepatitis B FAQ for the general public.

http://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/hbv/bfaq.htm

How is Hepatitis B spread?

Hepatitis B is spread when blood, semen, or other body fluid infected with the Hepatitis B virus enters the body of a person who is not infected. People can become infected with the virus during activities such as:

    Birth (spread from an infected mother to her baby during birth)
    Sex with an infected partner
    Sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment
    Sharing items such as razors or toothbrushes with an infected person
    Direct contact with the blood or open sores of an infected person
    Exposure to blood from needlesticks or other sharp instruments

Can a person spread Hepatitis B and not know it?

Yes. Many people with chronic Hepatitis B virus infection do not know they are infected since they do not feel or look sick. However, they still can spread the virus to others and are at risk of serious health problems themselves.
Can Hepatitis B be spread through sex?

Yes. Among adults in the United States, Hepatitis B is most commonly spread through sexual contact and accounts for nearly two-thirds of acute Hepatitis B cases. In fact, Hepatitis B is 50–100 times more infectious than HIV and can be passed through the exchange of body fluids, such as semen, vaginal fluids, and blood.

From Web MD

Hepatitis B (HBV) is 50 to 100 times easier to transmit sexually than HIV ( the virus that causes AIDS). HBV has been found in vaginal secretions, saliva, and semen. Oral sex and especially anal sex, whether it occurs in a heterosexual or homosexual context, are possible ways of transmitting the virus
