Last night I had unprotected sex with a girl who was menstruating and today she informed me that she is a carrier of Hepatitis B.

She claimed her type is very hard to pass onto another person. She said there's a risk - but it's tiny.

Clearly I am concerned, disappointed and going to get tested right away...

However, while I am waiting does anybody know what she is talking about when she says "her type is very hard to pass onto another person". Is there indeed a type / level of Hepatitis B that almost certainly can't be transmitted? Is that what Wikipedia is referring to when, talking about transmission of the disease, it says that "at least 30% of reported hepatitis B among adults cannot be associated with an identifiable risk factor..."

Please help, quite upset about this.

There is a resource directory associated with this web site... it can provide you with information...

I have Hep C, so I'm not as familiar with B, but I do know you can get it from unprotected sex. Nice of your partner to tell you the next day, instead of being upfront. Get checked soon and while you're waiting, don't drink alcohol. It'll be good practice, especially if you are infected with the virus. Then you definitely shouldn't drink. **David**

As far as I know, there is no "type" of hep B that is difficult to pass on.  It is easily transmitted...far easier than hep C, which is blood-borne (but could definitely be transmitted during menses.)  Get tested for hep B and C, AIDS, and STDs, then take Rick and David's advice.
