Chronic Hepatitis B and oral contraceptives

Sat Apr 16 12:06:52 EST 1994


This question came up where I work on Friday.  Does anyone know of any
contraindications for a person with Chronic Hepatitis B and oral
contraceptives?  From the package labeling there is the note about some
very rare liver cancers in otherwise normal persons.  Would a carrier
for Hepatitis B be at increased risk for this type of carcinoma because
of their increased risk from the Hepatitis?
