Response from Dr. Taylor

Your wife has chronic hepatitis B. I hope you will help and support her in getting evaluated and cared for by a hepatitis B doctor, if possible where you live.

You are protected against hepatitis B so you cannot catch hepatitis B from her so do not need condoms for hepatitis B prevention.

I suggset that everyone get an HIV test so this is something important for you both to consider.

use of vaccine after expiration
