Response from Dr. McGovern

You raise many questions: 1. I would not necessarily treat you. If I understand correctly, you have normal liver function tests and a normal liver biopsy. I would not just treat virus in your blood without evidence of disease. 2. I would also not want to treat you right now without evidence of disease because I would worry about drug resistance over time. 3. Your girlfriend should receive HBV vaccine if she hasn't received this in the past. 4. Women with chronic hepatitis B can give birth safely with proper care.
