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?
