Elisa hbsag was negative in may 2013 befr my dnc.Now another lab test shows hbsag positive during blood test fr fertility treatmnt.can tis be true?
Yes, but...: If a person converts from HepBsAg negative to HepBsAg positive, her primary care doctor can evaluate her and order a larger panel of Hepatitis B tests to see what is going on. If HepBsAg is confirmed to be positive, the patient is contagious with HepB viruses (which are spread through blood and bodily fluids contact). That means all household contacts should have their HepB immunity confirmed. ...Read more

No more exposures?: If a woman is a worrier, she will worry until she stops exposing herself. So, at this time she can stop worrying and stop exposing herself. If she decides to expose herself again, she will worry again. It's a choice to expose or not to expose; thus, the worrying is her own consequence within her control. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sir I m hbsag positive and doctor told me its acute infection. I did my final reports by Elisa cut of value 0.177 and patient od 0.827. What is this ?

Those are statistical laboratory values used for quality control and tracking purposes, and for comparison with other positive results in the population, in order to keep the results accurate. Please discuss with your healthcare provider about what you need to do ...Read more

I think you need to wait before you vaccinate with these test results, this sounds like you have active Hep B infection until disproven ...Read more
