I'm wondering how exactly Hep-B goes from a woman to a man.

I'm a male who recently had sex with a Hep-B carrier, we had protected sex but the condom broke. It was less than a minute that we went on before I realized.

I know I'm at high risk from what I read. But can anyone give me an opinion. I've been tested and awaiting results but not reassured by the fact that it can take up to 6 months to show up.

Is there a high chance that vaginal fluids could have infected me for a brief exposure and if there were no cuts or abrasions?

Or can vaginal fluids enter the urethra and infect you that way even if there are no abrasions?
