Preventing giving Hepatitis B to others
Can I prevent giving Hepatitis B to others?
Yes. You can prevent others from becoming infected with Hepatitis B by ensuring that your blood never gets into somebody else’s blood stream by preventing blood to blood contact. You can also prevent people becoming infected by using condoms during sex and ensuring that you do not share sexual or bodily fluids. You can do this by understanding how you get Hepatitis B.
