Response from Dr. McGovern

Chronic hepatitis B sometimes can resolve on its own - although not commonly.

You need to have follow up on hepatitis B surface antigen, e antigen, e antibody and most importantly, your viral load (HBV DNA).

If you have active infection, your partner needs to be tested for hepatitis B and if negative, should be vaccinated.
