My husband is a chronic Hep B carrier...we had a child together and afterward we foud out my husbands hep b was postive. Me and the child rushed and got tested. We were both told that our levels were in normal results. They we were not positve. I really want another child with my husband, is it possible that we could ever be sexual active with each other again?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You should be vaccinated against hepatitis B. The vaccine is extremely effective and will be protective.
