Response from Dr. McGovern

Yes - the main thing is that you should get vaccinated for hepatitis B to protect yourself. You will need three injections.

Hepatitis B in your partner can be chronic or resolved infection. If he has said that it is chronic, then he will need evaluation for possible treatment of hepatitis B as well as HIV. There are several medications that have an effect on HIV and HBV, if treatment for HIV is indicated.
