Dear volunteers, 
I had unprotected sex with a familiar person in 2017. I wasn’t aware of the possibility of std until in 2018 I found myself positive to HBV-2, which I got from this person. I had no other symptoms during these years and the outbreak of HBV was not frequent or serious.
Before I tested positive to HBV, I had unprotected contact twice with my new boyfriend. For the past few weeks, my new boyfriend’s body temperature has been fluctuating from 36.5C to 38C. No other symptom was found from him. Hard to explain the reason. The guy who passed HBV to me and me myself stayed healthy during these years. However because of the unexpected HBV infection, I am so worried of the possibility of getting HIV at the same time. I’m worried about if I have passed the disease to my new boyfriend. Shall I get a test even if I have no symptom?

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission in the event that you had acquired HBV-2 from a partner during unprotected sex. 

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of High Risk (Transmission of HIV is possible in the given scenario). This scenario is determined to be of High Risk because the act of unprotected sex does fulfill the three requirements of our HIV Transmission Equation (see diagram below). 

The equation has been satisfied due to the possibility of HIV positive fluid (blood, semen, vaginal fluid, rectal fluid, breast milk, etc), that has had direct access to the bloodstream, through a High-Risk activity (penetrative unprotected sex).

Recommendation: HIV transmission is possible in the given scenario. Please visit your healthcare provider for HIV screening. 

Thank you kindly, 

AIDS Vancouver Online/Helpline, Cody
