Prevention Of Hepatitis B In Fetuses And Couples?
What if someone gets hepatitis b then he wants to get married what about his partner and fetus
Hepatitis B is inflammation of the liver caused by hepatitis B virus infection. Hepatitis B virus infection can be transmitted through sexual contact with hepatitis B sufferers, use of syringes in exchange with hepatitis B sufferers, contaminated blood transfusions, contact with wounded patients with hepatitis B, transmitted from mother to fetus. Some hepatitis B sufferers do not experience any symptoms but still can pass it on to others. Symptoms that may appear in people with hepatitis B are:
Yellow skin or yellow eyes on the part that should appear white Fever Tiredness Urinating colored like tea Abdominal pain especially in the upper right Nausea or vomiting The diagnosis of hepatitis B is based on clinical symptoms and investigations such as blood laboratory liver function, HBsAg examination, and anti-HBs. If HBsAg remains positive after> 6 months, you are said to have chronic hepatitis B. Chronic hepatitis B has a higher risk of developing liver cirrhosis and liver cancer. There is no specific treatment for hepatitis B, treatment aims to reduce the amount of virus and reduce inflammation in the liver.
For hepatitis B sufferers who want to get married, special counseling is needed with prospective partners and premarital examination (the partner is also examined for hepatitis B status). Couples with HBsAg negative and anti HBs negative are certainly at risk of contracting from a partner who is hepatitis B. Female partners are also more at risk of contracting, because women are the ones who receive semen / body fluids from men. Couples can get a hepatitis B vaccine to reduce the risk of contracting. Patients receiving antiviral treatment to suppress the amount of the virus so that the limit is very small the possibility of transmitting it to others. Babies born to hepatitis B positive mothers will get hepatitis B vaccine and hepatitis B immunoglobulin to prevent hepatitis B.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
