Since my wife is 2 months pregnant, she's required to take Hepatitis testing. She got the result and it is "non-reactive". Her doctor said that her immune system was fine.

Do you think she's ok?

Response from Dr. McGovern

What I think you are referring to is that your wife got routine testing for hepatitis B surface antigen and it was non-reactive.

That means she has no risk of passing hepatitis B to her baby because she is not infected herself.

Good luck!
