For some people, hepatitis B infection becomes chronic, meaning it lasts more than six months.
Having chronic hepatitis B increases your risk of developing liver failure, liver cancer or cirrhosis a condition that causes permanent scarring of the liver. Most people infected with hepatitis B as adults recover fully, even if their signs and symptoms are extremely bad. HBV can be spread through sexual contact, sharing of needles, accidental needle sticks, and mother-to-child. Vaccinations for Hepatitis B exist, but, if you feel as if you’ve come in contact with the virus, receiving an injection of hepatitis B immune globulin within 12 hours of coming in contact with the virus may help protect you from developing hepatitis B, with your physician’s discretion.
