My ex-girlfriend has Hepatitis B, but I have been vaccinated for Hepatitis B before we had any sexual activities. I am now seeing another woman. Is she at risk to contract Hepatitis B, because my ex-girlfriend has the virus?
No, your current sexual partner is not at risk of contracting Hepatitis B from you because you donât have the virus. The vaccine has prevented you from contracting the virus yourself. If you'd like to, you can be tested for Hepatitis B for verification.
