Response from Dr. McGovern
The key test here is your HBcIgM test which is only seen in acute infection. You will need further follow up to determine that you have cleared your infection. This occurs most of the time in adults.
Your doctor should offer prophylaxis to any of your household and sexual contacts as well.
