Do you think he is in the acute stage?

Response from Dr. McGovern

It sounds like you have chronic hepatitis B infection with normal liver function tests which will need to be followed to determine if they remain this way.

Would also check a HBV DNA test to see if the infection is active or inactive.

Immunization for your partners would be indicated so hepatitis B is not transmitted to your partner or the future mother of your child.
