hepa b couple
May 22, 2005

What would be the possibility when two couple with hepa b made an intercourse? What will happen to them and the possibility that they will have a baby?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am not clear on whether you were trying to have a baby or not, but the risk to the baby of getting hepatitis B will depend on the mother's status.

During pregnancy, mothers with hepatitis B are monitored and if they continue to be chronic, the baby receives hepatitis B vaccines are birth and in the weeks after to protect the infant. These are very effective.

Dr. McGovern

thank you
