Response from Dr. McGovern

Hepatitis B infection can clear on its own. Your blood tests have shown your doctor a pattern that demonstrates clearance by your immune system. That is good news. You can prevent transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted viruses by using condoms. Your husband should have testing for hepatitis A, B, and C and should be immunized against hepatitis A and B if not immune on his own.

Help Me please i am very worry about HBsAg+
