Response from Dr. Holodniy
If you are describing a HBV viral load, that is indeed a low copy number, but still indicates a detectable level around 1000 IU/mL of blood. And HBV is likely to also be in other bodily fluids. You need to discuss this with your obstetrician as to what is the best thing to do.
