  1. Hello and thank you for posting on Medimetry.Hepatitis B infection usually does not cause any problem in conceiving.Inform your gynecologist about it.Be in regular followups of your doctor.With proper care you can prevent transmission of Hepatitis B infection in your baby.Your baby should be given 2 shots ,1 of hepatitis B vaccine and 2 of Hepatitis B immunoglobulin.These 2 shots if given within 12 hours of birth provide almost 90% protection against hepatitis B.The 2nd dose of hepatitis B vaccine should be given 1 month after 1st dose and 3rd dose after 6 months of first dose.So do not worry and visit your doctor after you conceive.Hope I have addressed all your queries.Write to us again.Take care and good day!
