Hi there,
Hepatitis B virus is transmitted by exposure to infectious blood or body fluids like semen and vaginal fluids. Most of the cases of hepatitis B cure spontaneously and may not require treatment. You may need a repeat test after 6 months to see whether you have cleared the virus or if the infection is persisting. In patients with hepatitis B infection almost in one in five cases the infection goes into a chronic phase. In this condition the person can be carrying and shedding the virus but may be apparently healthy with no symptoms. They are known as healthy carriers. People who are chronically infected and have persistently elevated SGPT which is a marker of liver damage, and HBV DNA levels may need antiviral therapy. Consult a hepatologist for more queries and assistance. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!

you need fibroscan to define your liver status and hbsag quantity in iu/ml to know if hbv can be cleared by pegintf treatment

hbsag 1000-1500iu/ml on genotype d can be cleared easily by peg, for genotypes a, b, c see this study
