    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    iam_sam posted:
    if a person has hepatitis, is there any way he/she can prevent it from spreading it to his/her spouse (or passing it on to future children) if they plan to have children (unprotective sex)?

    i have hep b, i took all 3 hep b series shot already; will this do any good for me?

    if my wife took these 3 shots; will it really protect her from getting hep b from me?

    The hepatitis B vaccine should protect your spouse. There was no reason to get the HBV vaccine if you are already infected
