Jun 5, 2007
I am on Hepsera and Baraclude.and my Hep B Viral DNA is gone.I want to have a child thru IVF . I know that I have to be in this medications for life, please, i need your advice
Response from Dr. McGovern
I would discuss options with your GYN doctor. With complete DNA suppression, you may want to discuss switching to lamivudine, which has been studied in pregnancy. I can't advise you further since I do not know your full hepatitis B status and whether you have lamivudine resistance mutations.
