|Pregnancy & Hep B - Need answer ASAP
Mar 28, 2002
I am 4 months pregnant and have been diagnosed as a HEP B carrier. How does this effect my pregnacy? My test results are the following: Surface AG +, Surface AB -, IGM non-reactive, Hep C & A -, Core AB +, anti-HBE +, HBV E antigen -. A DNA screen was completed with the following results: HBV DNA QNT PCR (pg/mL) <0.001 and HBV DNA QNT PCR log (cpy/mL) <2.3 and the amount of HBV DNA is less than 200 copies/mL. Please explain what this all means to mean in the future and my baby? All liver enzymes tests were normal.
Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres
The tests you describe suggest that you are clearing the Hepatitis B.You do not have documented viremia in blood,and lost the HBeAg,and have HBeAb positive.You are in way to a complete resolution of the infection.You should not have any problem with the delivery of your child.
