Response from Dr. McGovern

Your viral level is very low with is good news. Please continue to get regular follow-up with your doctor to be certain this stays the same.

Your spouse to be should be checked for hepatitis B. If he or she is susceptible, then vaccination is needed to prevent transmission. I would also check a surface antibody after the immunization is done to be certain that the vaccine worked.
