yes it is and most doctors and liver specialists, which are totally ingorant and not updated on hbv, call inactive many patients who are not

inactive carrier is defined by (in order of importance):
fibroscan less than 6kpa (which equals to no fibrosis)
hbsag less than 1000iu/ml (genotype A and D), asian genotypes B and C have much lower levels which i am not sure of something less than 100iu/ml

hbvdna less than 2000iu/ml

alt less than 30 for men and 19 for women

Thank you. I learn that the hbv vaccine is a series of 3 injections that should be taken in 6 months. is it safe to have sex with him after the first injection or should i wait till i finish all 3? Is it safe to kiss him before taking the vaccination
