Doctor insights on:
Hep B high,Hep C low: Hepatitis is a broad term and there are viral and non-viral causes. Assuming you are talking about contracting hepatitis b or c, then hepatitis b is considered much more contagious sexually than hep c, unless barrier methods are used. Also hep b can be passed from mother to child during birth. In a monogamous relationship, hepatitis c is transmitted. ...Read more
VERY COMMON: Sexually transmitted disease. Avoid it.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes...maybe : Here are two extremes. A monogamous heterosexual couple has one partner who finds out he has hcv. If the other partner is negative the cdc does not recommend condom use. On the other hand, we have an epidemic of hcv in men who have unprotected anal sex with other men. Condom use is strongly recommended in this case. New partners should use condoms for hcv, hiv, hep b, syphilis, gc, chlamydia, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My boyfriend just told me he has hepatitis C we had sex once so how long should I wait before i go to doctor?
When was sex?: After a risky exposure, it can take 3-6 months for hepatitis c antibodies to be detectable. But you might want to get tested now to see if you already have hcv. Heterosexual vaginal sex has a low risk of hcv transmission, so you will want to talk to your boyfriend and your doctor about how to be safely intimate. ...Read more
What are the chances of getting Hepatitis C from having sex? What happens if you want to have a baby with someone with HEP C?
Low: Yes, but the risk of transmission from sexual contact is believed to be low. The risk increases for those who have multiple sex partners, have a sexually transmitted disease, engage in rough sex, or are infected with HIV. More research is needed to better understand how and when Hepatitis C can be spread through sexual contact. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Condoms should be considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but why chance?: Repeated exposure increases your risk (its like rolling the dice again & again). Different kinds of hepatitis virus are more or less effectively transmitted sexually. Having the male partner wear a condom is some protection, but really...Why take the chance until your partner is treated & the virus eradicated? If you have been exposed, get blood test to see if you got it, can transmit it to others. ...Read more
What happens if you and your partner are both clean and don't have hepatitis is it possible to get it by having anal sex?
I'm an older virgin(30's) just diagnosed with CMV (the cause of my sudden hepatitis). How is this possible with no sex of any kind or kissing??
CMV reactivation: CMV hepatitis can be due either to a new CMV infection or, more often, reactivation of an old infection. CMV can be sexually transmitted, but it's not the most common way. 90% of all people get CMV in childhood, sometimes when born if their moms are carriers; or from other children. Your doctors probably can do testing to see if your problem is a new CMV infection or reactivation of an old one. ...Read more
Just found out I have hepatitis b. My husband has been tested & is a negative. Can we still have unprotected sex without him getting it hepatitis b?
Hepatitis B: First I am sorry to hear of this. But, i need more information. What is your hepatitis b viral count? Do you have the active chronic form of it? Has your husband not been vaccinated for hepatitis b? If not he should be. (as should every living human). Hepatitis b vaccinations began for all children in the U.S. In the early 1980s. Given your age I am surprised you were not vaccinated. ...Read more
What is hepatitis b symptoms and ways to contract it? My boyfriend whom I have unprotected sex with just let slip that he has it. We have known eachother for 4 years and its never came up. I know if he knows he is supposed to tell me by law! correct?
There : There is no law that I am aware of where people are obligated to discuss disease status - even hiv. You can only catch hepatitis b from: - birth - mom to baby transmission - sharing needles with an infected person - having sex with an infected person - being in direct contact with the blood or open sores of an infected person - sharing a tooth brush or razor with an infected person (because of bleeding with those 2 activities) you cannot catch hepatitis b through breastfeeding, saliva, sharing utensils, hugging, kissing, touching, coughing or sneezing. 6-10% of adults with hepatitis b go on to have chronic hepatitis b (that means in 90-94% of people, it just goes away). 15-25% of people with chronic hepatitis b will go on to have liver disease. This means that even if you catch hepatitis b, odds are you'll be ok depending on your age or occupation, you may have been vaccinated against hepatitis b. It is now one of the recommended childhood vaccines and most kids finish their series by the time they are 1 years old! it is very safe and research has shown that it is not associated with any chronic illnesses such as ms. Receiving 3 doses of the vaccine will protect 90% of people against hepatitis b. If you have any other questions, contact your healthcare provider. ...Read more
