Welcome to HCM
You have suffered jaundice in the month of July but two month is long tome to recover .
Jaundice is just symptom which can be due to various causes most common is viral hepatitis.
If it was viral hepatitis it is important to know which type A,B,C& E are common one as Hepatitis B&C can cause chronic hepatitis and can be transmitted sexually also so it is not only time gap it is type which is important.
if it was B or C then you should consult a Gastroenterologist and test for viral markers is required and he will guide you depending on result.
Even vaccine is there for Hepatitis B .
If it was A or E and you have completely recovered there should not be any problem in going ahead with family.
Hope this information is useful for you.
Take care
Good Luck.
