She MUST get the vaccination inmediately after doing a blood test to check that she is not infected. Most vaccines consist on 3 shots. The first one as soon as she can, the second after one month and the third after 6 months. Then she must do a blood test to check that she has enough Antobodies for protection. Without doing this, is likely she will get infected.

So can we do sex during the vaccination period (6 month) or not? Or any suggestion to manage this as I have only 1 month before marriage.

you can have the shot and then check after 2 weeks if hbsab is higher than 10miu/ml

10 is already considered protective but since there are no clear studies on this just wait for titer to reach 250miu/ml at least

you may give some vitamin c, coq10 and vitamin e, they are reported to boost vaccine response but about 5% fail the vaccine so do check hbsab

use a condom until she have the antibody.

anyway, even if she has antibody from the first shot, it is mandatory to made all the shots for "memorisation" or long term immunisation.

10 UI/ml is the threshold used in the science literature, but @staf said that no claer study were made using this threshold, so some other consider the threshold  to be 100 UI/ml or 250 UI/ml (to be on the safe side).

Tnx a lot all of u guys.

As i understand i need to complete all the three shots, and till then use condom even antibodies are reach to 250 UI/ml after first shot.

If the antibodies are 200 or 250 on completion of this vaccine then I can take out condom.
