Hepatitis B can be spread through sexual contact. Your sexual experience may have put you at risk for hepatitis if you have ever had a sexually transmitted infection (gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, or any other). You are also at risk if you have had unprotected sex (sex without a condom) with several different partners, or if you have had a sexual partner with a high-risk history.

Currently, vaccination against hepatitis B is available. For people who do not have a stable, monogamous partner, vaccination is advisable.

Do you have a sexual history that may have put you at risk for hepatitis B exposure?

Yes, I may have had a high-risk sexual exposure.

No, this is not a concern for me.
