Hello all. I really hope someone can help me. I'm new to this site so sorry if i go about it the wrong way but I'm so worried right not its hard. I had a sexual encounter 7 weeks ago and I got some results back a week after that which said i caught chlamydia. I had some antibiotics and cleared it. I had a follow up set of tests done on 6 weeks post exposure which was last week and I had a positive for Hepatitis B. My results are as stated on my results paperwork: 

Anti-Hbs (cmia) <10 IU/1  Negative
Anti-Hbc igG    Positive 
Anti-Hbc igM    Negative 

It says underneath the results on my paperwork that the findings are consistent with a chronic Hepatits B infection or Naturally acquired immunity. 

The thing is I had a test 6 weeks ago and after first exposure and it said i was Negative for everything. How can this be chronic so soon on this new test.

I really this makes sense and hope someone can help me out with any info they can i would be so happy. 


Many thanks

Diagnosis of hep b is a more complex undertaking. Are you sure you were tested I the past for hep b?

A chronic infection would be a long standing infection of months not just 6 weeks. Were you vaccinated in the past for hep b?

Really they best way to gain understanding about your situation is to speak to your doctor.

“Is there anywhere way my body got rid of it very quick?”

I don’t know I am not a doctor or any type of medical worker. Lucinda is a nurse but otherwise we here are a community of patients primarily who are or were infected with hep c. Some like myself have advanced liver disease. This is a support community. We cannot offer medical opinion or diagnose medical conditions.

As I said hep b test results are more complex to interpret than hep c. This is why I strongly recommend you speak with your doctor.

“Is there anyway I can upload a pic so i can put my result paper work up.”

I don’t think so. When I post a test result mine are available on line so I just copy and paste.

Ask your doctor. Call their office and see if you can talk to someone by phone or if not make an appointment for a consultation.
