Am I at risk of chronic hepatitis B after having unprotected sex ?

A day later I discovered ha has a mistress abroad who has chronic hepatitis b. He said he uses condom whenever they have sex. I completed my 1st TWINRIX in December 2010, 2nd dose on January 2011 and my 3rd dose is on June 2011. And he had sex with her before he came back. Am I at risk? Please help me.

Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
get detailed test of both of you from some good centre ,she may be chronic carrier ,so spread can occur ,I don`t think in such cases immunization alone can help.
Wish you good health

Hi, I m a 19 year old girl who has chronic hepatitis b. I m inactive however (I just do regular check ups so my doctor keeps an eye on me). I recently started dating someone and I have informed him of my hepatitis b. He would like to know if being an inactive carrier means that it is okay to have unprotected sex or not. We do know that using protection is best, but it s a question he had on his mind that we both don t know the answer to. Is it better if I talk to my doctor about this more specifically about my case? I would contact my doctor but I m currently halfway across the world. Also, the guy I m dating has just gotten his vaccinations. Thank you.

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?
