If your vaccination was successful, then you will be protected against getting Hepatitis B through sexual contact. Not all vaccinations "take", so the only way to be sure is to have your medical provider order a test to prove that your hepatitis B antibodies are high and protective.

Remember that Hepatitis B is not the only disease that can be contracted sexually. Practice safe sex always.
