Found out I have hepB in 2004 in a routine blood test. Probably got it in my teens since my family does not have hepB and my dad has HBsab without vaccinations. Having a high viral load then (8log), HBeag+, with slightly elevated ALT, my dr then put me on lamivudine. Th
[More]e 1st mth I had a 2log decrease in DNA and dr said I was responding well. In 7mths, DNA was und. I stopped lamivudine after taking it for 1.3 yrs due to trying for a baby in mid 2006. after birth, I saw another dr and my DNA was back to ard baseline , ALT normal. This dr put me on entecavir and DNA was und after a yr, HBe seroconverted after 1.5yrs on entecavir. results have been the same after this. I continued taking for another 1.6yrs before I decided to stop to try for another baby in mar 2012.
