Can I marry someone with hepatitis B?
To put it simply, yes, a person living with hepatitis B can get married. In fact, a healthy relationship can be a source of love and support for those who may feel alone in their diagnosis. Transmission of hepatitis B can be prevented in your partner; it’s a vaccine preventable disease!
Can I still get hepatitis B even if I was vaccinated?
The good news is that hepatitis B is vaccine preventable. This means that after you complete the vaccine series, you cannot contract hepatitis B through any modes of transmission; you are protected for life!
What is inactive chronic hepatitis B?
A significant portion of chronic hepatitis B (HBV) infected patients is in the inactive carrier state, characterized by normal transaminase levels, little viral replication and minimal liver necroinflammatory activity.
Can hepatitis B come back after treatment?
In most cases of acute hepatitis B, people recover completely after the short-term infection. However, a small percentage of patients go on to develop chronic hepatitis B.
Can a hepatitis B carrier infect others?
Hepatitis B carriers are people who have the hepatitis B virus in their blood, even though they don’t feel sick. Between 6% and 10% of those people who’ve been infected with the virus will become carriers and can infect others without knowing it.
Does Hepatitis B stay with you for life?
Once you are diagnosed with chronic hepatitis B, the virus will most likely stay in your blood and liver for a lifetime. It is important to know that you can pass the virus along to others, even if you don’t feel sick.
Why Hepatitis B is not curable?
Chronic hepatitis B hasn’t been cured so far in part because current therapies have failed to destroy the viral reservoir, where the virus hides in the cell. This is in contrast to hepatitis C virus, which has no such viral reservoir and can now be cured with as little as 12 weeks of treatment.
How long can you have hep B without knowing?
Many people with Hepatitis B have no symptoms and do not know they are infected. If symptoms occur with acute infection, they usually appear within 3 months of exposure and can last anywhere from 2–12 weeks. Symptoms of chronic Hepatitis B can take up to 30 years to develop.

Can inactive hep B become active?
The inactive carrier state may for a lifetime, but a proportion of patients may undergo subsequent spontaneous or immunosuppressioninduced reactivation of HBV replication with reappearance of high levels of HBV DNA with or without HBeAg seroreversion and a rise in ALT levels .
Can inactive hepatitis B be cured?
There’s no cure for hepatitis B. The good news is it usually goes away by itself in 4 to 8 weeks. More than 9 out of 10 adults who get hepatitis B totally recover. However, about 1 in 20 people who get hepatitis B as adults become “carriers,” which means they have a chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis B infection.
