getting married
Nov 9, 2008

i am 28 yr old male with chronic hep b , also taking entacavir treatment for past 2 years.Results show virus as undetectable for the last 6 months. My question here is i am getting married month , how do i prevent my spouse from getting infected and can i have children with my spouse.And What are the chances of getting infected through oral sex in my case.

thanks in advance.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your spouse should definitely get immunized against hepatitis B and then you can both relax. She should get tested after her series of shots to be certain that she has developed protective antibodies.
