|Hep B Carrier?
Jun 6, 2002
Hi, Past Hep B lab results indicated: HepBsAg negative, HepBsAb positive, and HepBcAb postive. I'm currently pregnant and worried that I can pass the HepB virus onto my child and whether or not my husband is at risk of getting HepB from me also. Thank you.

Your blood tests indicate that you had HBV in the past but do not currently carry the virus. You are not infectious to your child or husband. Your child should get the HBV vaccine anyway now that universal vaccination is widely practiced. Discuss these issues with your OB doc.
