Can Women with Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Kidney Disease Get Pregnant

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-10-05 14:21

Can Women with Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Kidney Disease Get PregnantWomen who are hepatitis b virus (HBV) carriers may transmit the virus to their children with high rate between 30-90 percent. Then, can Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Kidney Disease patients get pregnant? This is one of the most concerned question. Read on to find the answer.

According to nephrologists, women with HBV Kidney Disease can consider becoming pregnant after the illness condition becomes stable, the kidney function is normal, and the result of urinalysis turn negative. During the period of pregnancy, measures should be taken to decrease the number of virus within the mother's body. In this way, we can lower down the infectivity and reduce the threat to the baby.

In addition, certain measures can be taken to stop the transmission of virus to the baby. Specific methods include:

1. For HBsAg positive and HBeAg negative mother, their infectivity is relatively low. In this case, regular treatment such as injection of Hepatitis B vaccine to the fetus is ok.

2. For HBsAg positive and HBeAg positive mother, simplex injection of Hepatitis B vaccine is not effective, and double blocking should be taken. That is to say, while injecting Hepatitis B vaccine, the injection of HBIG is also needed. This method can obviously improve the blocking effect, as HBIG can kill those virus that have invaded into the baby's body by the time of delivery.

3. Reduce the number of virus in the mother's blood with anti-virus therapy before the HBsAg mother gets pregnant, or take anti-virus medications in the later pregnancy (2-4 weeks before delivery). It should be notice that these blocking measures cannot stop all mother-to-fetus transmission because of intrauterine infection and individual differences.

Breast feeding is not recommended for HBsAg positive mother, as there is HBV virosome in the breast milk, which is infectious to the baby in certain degree. Moreover, the baby has lower immunity and defective immune system, so he cannot recognize and clear up the virus that invade into his body. As a result, chronicity of HBV infection can be caused.
