Response from Dr. McGovern

I would follow-up the result of your hepatitis B virus test (HBV DNA) to see if the virus becomes non-detectable. In the meantime, a condom would be the safest route. Your wife should be vaccinated as well. Once her surface antibody is positive, she will be protected.

please answer very worried.
