This is why ever sharing any paraphernalia, including cookers, for drug use could lead to infection. Getting "stuck" with a needle, or reusing needles for injections like testosterone or vitamins, can also lead to hepatitis b or c injection. Always be careful at tattoo parlors, piercing places, etc. ...Read more

It sounds like it: I'm not entirely certain about the terminology you report but I would interpret what you have given as confirming that the specimen is positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (a confirmation of which was done "reflexly" when initial test looked positive). This indicates the presence of the active hepatitis B virus and suggests the presence of infectivity. Discuss next steps with your doctor! ...Read more
