hep b treatment

I have a Hep B which was diagnosed since 2007. Unfortunately, all my doctors said that it is a disease with no cure and I am prone for cirrhosis or liver cancer. Last Jan. 2014 I had my check up with a hepatologist. The following were the results of my lab test:

SGPT Cormay          Normal Range 0-42         COncentration 26 U/L
Hepatitis Profile
       HBsAg          Reactive
       Anti HBS      Non-reactive
       Anti HBC IgG  Reactive
      Anti HAV igM    Non-reactive
      HBeAg         Reactive
      Anti HBe     Non-reactive
HBV DNA Viral Load      30,991,616 IU/ml
Liver Elastography  values are within normal limits

My liver is still normal but I have significantly high hbv dna viral load. My doctor even suggested that I undergo liver biopsy to be sure if my liver is still healthy. I am really upset and scared about the possibility of having cirrhosis or liver cancer.Right now, I am not taking any medication as I am not given any meds to take. My doctor said that if I want to get pregnant she will give me medicines so that my viral load will lessen. I used to take Essentiale as prescribed by my first doctor and Liver aide as prescribed by my 2nd doctor but I stopped taking them. I also want to get pregnant but the thought of infecting my soon-to-be-husband even if he already received a hep B vaccine and the risk of transmitting this to my baby really adds to my stress. Can you help me out?
