she just found out she has hep b
Feb 11, 2007

what upsets me, is she is saying its chronic, but she is 25, how could she have not figured this out in her 25 years of life? another concern, is we've been together for 2 years, and she told me not to worry and that her doctor told her she couldnt give it to anyone else because of envelopes or something? is this true or should i be concerned?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Most people who get hepatitis B clear the infection and do not develop chronic disease and do not transmit the infection.
