Hepatitis B is found in the precum, semen, and blood of an infected person. Hepatitis B vaccine is very effective in preventing transmission of hepatitis B infection. If mother has been vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine the chances of transmission from husband are very low. If mother is hepatitis B negative the newborn cannot be infected. WHO recommends that all infants receive the hepatitis B vaccine as soon as possible after birth, preferably within 24 hours. After the birth dose 2 or 3 doses should be given to complete the primary series. The complete vaccine series offers protective antibody levels in more than 95% of infants, children and young adults. You should consult your doctor to clear your doubts. I hope it helped.
Best luck and regards!

Now I am planning for Baby.
My question is
Is it possible to fully cure from this HBV? Is there any medicine comes in India for curing of HBV?
Can I give a healthy baby without transmitting the HBV?
I am also suffering from PCOD.
