family planning(pregnancy) and hepatitis B

about 2 years ago, I found out I have hepatitis B. I went to the Dr's office, took some blood, and he said that my body is fighting it very well.

He He told me to visit him again in 3 months. went there, nothing wrong. my body is fighting them off. then he told me to start visiting him every 6 months. I have been doing this ever since and every time, he just tells me that my there is no problem.

So with that in mind(and based on what he says), Is it 'safe' for me and my wife to try to have a child? With my hepatitis B pretty much not doing anything in my body, is it still possible for my wife or my child to get infected?

There's no 'cure' for hep B right? If that is true, then when/how do I know it is safe to start a family?
