Response from Dr. McGovern

If you are HBsAg reactive, then you have chronic Hepatitis B E antigen negative infection.

If you get married, your wife to be should be vaccinated in advance.

You can certainly have a baby and as long as your wife is not infected, there should be no major issues.

I would not have sex without a condom until you know that the vaccine worked well in your wife to be. This can be checked with a simple blood test.

HCV in semen?
