Hello everyone. I'm Peter. I'm 16 years old, from Spain (please excuse my terrible english) and I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with Hepatitis B, I am a chronic carrier, I have a viral load of over 1.000.000.000 IU/mL. And I'm currently planning on taking Entecavir.
I've seen many debates over the internet about Hepatitis B transmission via kissing (normal and/or french). Is it true? Is there a risk of already giving Heps B to my girlfriend? I am aware of transmission via sexual contact and blood contact.
Hello, I am so sorry to hear you have Hepatitis B. I think that you need to research Hep B, which is what I am going to do now so in the future perhaps I can help people like you. I know that Hepatitis C is only transmitted blood to blood however I do not know about type B. I will try to find some articles for you. In the mean time I wanted to tell you how sorry I am. Good luck to you
hello there in spain, amigo, i am also a hepa B carrier but as of now i am still doing the different lab test for legal verification of my gastro enterologist, actually hepa b is can only transmitted true blood contact, sexual intercourse and blood transfusion dont believe in rumor that saliva or the utensil you used can transfer the hbv.
Before you take the entecavir tablet you should need to see your dr. And you need to do all the laboratory test they required. So that she/he can decide if you need to undergo medication, some HBV carrier can not go for medication due to the viral load and some reason.
If you are already taking entecavir without the prescription of the dr there is a tendency that the HBV will stock or be stagnant on your body.
