I am 45 years old. I was diagnosed of hbv. Before doing the test, I had unsafe sex with my wife. I am currently on lamivudine for 6 months. My question is can I have unsafe sex (sex without using condom)? Can I take the hbv vaccine?

The hepatitis B virus is spread when blood, semen, or other body fluid infected with the hepatitis B virus enters the body of a person who is not infected. Sex with an infected partner. Sharing needles, syringes, or drug preparation equipment. Let's have a detailed discussion for better advice.
