Response from Dr. McGovern

I assume that you are referring to hepatitis B infection. If you tried treatment and had "bad side effects" I would discuss treatment again with a doctor since there are many more drugs available now with an excellent side effect profile.

Would have your sexual partners informed that they should be vaccinated against hepatitis B.

Has she put my baby at risk?
