Prevention So As Not To Get Hepatitis B?
good afternoon, want to ask how to prevent hepatitis B from becoming infected by a prospective husband? Are there other prevention besides vaccines? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hepatitis B is caused by a viral infection that attacks the liver parenchyma. This disease can vary in severity, some are mild, some are severe. Frequently, hepatitis B sufferers will experience abdominal pain, fever, muscle and joint pain, thick urine, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, weakness, fatigue, and yellowing eyes and skin. In the early stages, these symptoms are not uncommon, so treatment is often delayed.
Screening for hepatitis B is one of the efforts that are recommended for couples who will get married. Because the virus that causes hepatitis B can be transmitted easily through body fluids, including blood, penile fluid, vagina, and anus during sexual intercourse.
If your potential partner has hepatitis B, it is very important that you take optimal precautionary measures so that you don't get infected, by vaccinating. Frequently, the hepatitis B vaccine is administered as many as 3-4 times injections over 6 months. In addition, the following steps are also appropriate for you to do:
Check with your husband to a specialist in internal medicine to get optimal treatment regarding the disease
Avoid unprotected sexual relations (condoms), make sure the condoms you use are always new, do not leak, and do not come apart when used
Stay away from drugs, tattoos, body piercing
Always take care of your immune system, that is by always living a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise, consumption of balanced nutritious food, and adequate sleep
Consult directly with an obstetrician if you and your partner intend to plan to have a baby
Hope this helps ...
