I copy the following information from www.hepb.org which I hope is useful to you.

Will I recover?
The first question most people ask is whether or not they will recover from a hepatitis B infection. The answer is directly related to that age at which a person is infected. Most infected adults will recover without any problems, but unfortunately, most infected babies and children will develop chronic hepatitis B infections.
Acute Vs. Chronic
A hepatitis B infection is considered to be “acute” during the first 6 months after being exposed. This is the average period of time it takes to recover from a hepatitis B infection. If you still test positive for the hepatitis B virus (HBsAg+) after 6 months, you are considered to have a "chronic" hepatitis B infection, which can last a lifetime.
What should I do if I am diagnosed with chronic hepatitis B?
Make an appointment with a hepatologist (liver specialist) or gastroenterologist familiar with hepatitis B. This specialist will order blood tests and possibly a liver ultrasound to evaluate your hepatitis B status and the health of your liver. Your doctor will probably want to see you at least once or twice a year to monitor you and determine if you would benefit from treatment.
Most people with chronic hepatitis B can expect to live long, healthy lives. It is important to know that you can pass the virus along to others, even if you don’t feel sick. This is why it’s so important that you make sure that all close household contacts and sex partners are vaccinated against hepatitis B.
Consider following these helpful tips:
Avoid alcohol and smoking as they can be extremely harmful to a liver already infected with the hepatitis B virus.
Talk to your doctor before taking any prescription, over the counter medication, or herbal remedies.
Although there is no special diet for people who have chronic hepatitis B, a healthy, well-balanced diet that is low-fat and includes plenty of vegetables is recommended.
Avoid eating raw shellfish, since they can contain bacteria that are harmful to your liver.
Is there a cure for chronic hepatitis B?
Right now, there is no cure for chronic hepatitis B, but the good news is there are treatments that can help slow the progression of liver disease by slowing down the virus. If there is less hepatitis B virus being produced, then there is less damage being done to the liver. Sometimes these drugs can even get rid of the virus, although this is not common.
With all of the new exciting research, there is great hope that a complete cure will be found for chronic hepatitis B in the near future. Visit our Drug Watch for a list of other promising drugs in development.
Should I be on medication?
It is important to understand that not every person with chronic hepatitis B needs to be on medication. You should talk to your doctor about whether you are a good candidate for drug therapy or a clinical trial. Be sure that you understand the pros and cons of each treatment option. Whether you decide to start treatment or not, you should be seen regularly by a liver specialist or a doctor knowledgeable about hepatitis B.
My gf have diagnosed with hepatitis b on feb 2013, We had done all the test which is showing normal. Doctors are not giving medicines and they told her b/c all reports are normal, What should we do. i am quite confused should i get married with her or not.. please tell me in elaborate.
see first i think she must be having a very low dna count or nil as she might be hbeag -ve.. Get urself vaccinated if u are not as soon as possible.
Then related to marriage, its ur own decision. But I think love sees no boundaries. And this one is no big reason as this might happen to any1. It might have also been detected after marriage. And whats the guarantee that whom ul later marry wont have any medical problem. Moreover, its quite possible and huge scope for further improved treatments. Right now also treatments available are gud if by chance later she required treatment. So if u love her, then U should go ahead..Rest depends on u dude..god bless..:)
thanks , her DNA report is also normal, Viral is not loaded till now. As for as marriage is concern,my parents are not allowing me to do so,As she has not loaded viral and all her result are normal,Is it could be complete recover without any treatment.A herbal doctor has committed for complete recover,by taking liv52hb tablet and few other medicines for six month....Is there a hope to get recover in that case i can manage my parents.
please help and share if any one has same issue and was fully recovered.
I VE BEEN DONATING M PLASMA FOR 2 N A HALF EARS AND I WALK IN THERE TODA AND THE TELL ME ITS A POSSIBILIT I MIGHT HAVE HEPATITIS B THE DIDNT SA IF IT WAS CHRONIC M BO FRIEND THINKS I CHEATED AND I HONESTL DIDNT IV NEVER SLEPT WITH NE ONE BUT HIM BUT THE LASMA LACE TOLD HIM HE DONT HAVE IT IVE BEEN CRYING IM SCARED AND IM CONFUSED I DO HAVE A DOCTORS AT 2MA BUT WAT DO I TELL M BO FRIEND I LOVE HIM WHERE ELSE COULD THIS HAVE COME FROM LZ RESPOND!!!!!
I am not very good at reading your post as I am of the older generation, LOL.
The first thing I would do is to have a blood test to test for Hepatitis B. Labs can make mistakes and what the blood donation service told you is very vague.
Assuming, just assuming, that you have Hepatitis B, then we have to determine whether it is chronic or acute. As you have been donating blood regularly, so we will assume it is acute.
The most likely person to get it from will be your boy friend. Who is "Lasma Lace"? One way to be sure is to have him tested too for Hepatitis B. Other possibilities are shared needle, tattooing, and medical procedures such as dental work?
