Can a hepatitis B infected girl think marriage
Feb 13, 2010

Hi, My sister got diagnosed to HBV virus recently is at home and left her job. The doctor first adviced for vaccine but then aksed us to come back after 1 month. Now he after one month he says she still doesn't need vaccine. He asked us to come back after six months. Docotos saying she becoming mormal as her sgbt tests are normal. Can she think of marrying?

Response from Dr. McGovern

She needs further testing to see if she has cleared her infection or if she has developed chronic infection.

Even if she has developed chronic infection, she can protect her partner by having him get vaccinated. Also she can get treatment for HBV infection.

So very confused by conflicting information!!! pls help
