    Doctors usually test again after 6 weeks of the first diagnosis. That's the acute phase. If your Body has cleared the virus by then chances are you are cured. If you still have the virus then no, and you will need to go on medication for life to suppress it and have your nearest and dearest vaccinated as yiu are then what is known as chronic. Don't believe people who try to sell remedies that claim to cure Hep B.

    In answer to your question about children, are you a man or a woman?

    You could infect a partner. The virus is blood borne and can be transmitted blood to blood, so can be transmitted to anyone that way, man, woman or child. It can also be found in semen and other body fluids, so yes you could infect a sexual partner but not an unborn child. I would suggest that if you are currently in a sexual relationship you wear a condom during sex. 

    Any children you may have in the future should be protected by vaccination, as should a long term partner.

    My partner has already been vaccinated and tested negetive for the virus.

    I understand  that i can infect my partner (if she has not been vaccinated) BUT i'm quite understand what you mean by  'not an unborn child?'.   so, if my partner has been vaccinated and the virus can be transmitted through semen, does this means that my child will be born with or without the diseases?

    There have been a few small scientific studies trying to answer the question of transmission in vitro. They have found the virus in the umbilical chord where the father is positive and the mother is negative, but never found antibodies in the baby.  So I guess if it has ever happened no one has recorded it and it's probably extremely unlikely.

    The baby is at risk of infection at the time of birth from an infected mother and so the baby will be given 2 hep b shots after birth. So u can infect the mother if she isn't vaccinated but be aware, some people do NOT get adequate protection from hep b vaccinaions. I am one of those and would never have known if I didn't have my levels checked due to nursing requirements. Even after a further booster it did not bring my levels up and so I am at risk of infection.
