Better to take course of all 3 vaccines. Of course if you want to do test you may and take vaccination if HbsAg is negative, For boys HPV is of not much value.

Hi. I (male) did hepatitis b (HBS-Ag (ECL) and hepatitis c (Anti HCV (ECL) 16 weeks after the risk (it was a condom-protected vaginal sex with a female sex worker). I'm wondering if I need to re-test or the result is definite? I should point out that I didn't have any symptoms during the period except a cold that happened 5 days after the risk and recovered in 7-8 days.

Condom protected sex will not transmit any infection and you need not worry. Instead of hepatitis B you should have done Hiv test which is more common in sex workers than hepatitis B as sexually transmitted disease.

Hello, I was detected with Hbsag positive during my gallstone surgery and now, my hbeag is negative but the log value HBV DNA quantitative is 2.65. Wanted to know, if this is normal or chronic? And what could be the treatment. I never had blood transmission nor had sex. Moreover, had jaundice once when the gallstone slipped into CBD. Then what could be the cause of positive HBsag? What precautions are needed? And is this curable Thanks in anticipation.

Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) seropositivity indicates the presence of hepatitis B viral (HBV) infection (acute or chronic). ... Up to 97% of healthy adults with acute HBV will clear the infection.

The chance of contracting hepatitis from kissing is virtually non-existent, as hepatitis B, C and D can only be spread through blood and bodily fluids (including semen and vaginal secretions). Hepatitis A and E also don't spread through kissing, as they are only transmitted through fecal-oral contact.

For hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs), a level less than 5 mIU is considered negative, while a level more than 12 mIU is considered protective. Any value between 5 and 12 mIU is indeterminate and should be repeated. So you have positive level of HbSAg For hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs), a level less than 5 mIU is considered negative, while a level more than 12 mIU is considered protective. Any value between 5 and 12 mIU is indeterminate and should be repeated. Thus in your case the viral load of HB is negative

Main route of hepatitis b transmission is via blood transfusion.in sexual route the chance of transmission is very less. Perhaps possible if there are active bleeding wounds /infected secretions in the genital area. You can get your wife's hepatitis b test evaluation after 3 months. Henceforth onwards use condoms during sex.
