Is it possible to get hep b by sucking dick

Hi there,

Yes, we think oral sex is a route of transmission for Hepatitis B virus, and Hepatitis B virus is found in blood, semen, vaginal fluid and breast milk. Fortunately, there is a vaccine that can prevent Hepatitis B, and many people in British Columbia have been vaccinated and are immune to Hepatitis B. If you are not immune, you can get a vaccine at an STI clinic or through a public health unit - you can use our clinic finder app to find your nearest STI clinic. 

Hope that answers your question,

Health Nurse
