Confused? Help please...
I was tested for hep b using the antigen test, and hep c using the antibody test 11 weeks after exposure. I am so confused on these tests and if I took the antigen too late and the hep c antibody test too early? Can someone please point me in the right direction. So far they are both neg, but I don't know what that means. Please help!

Thanks!

Hi, if the antigens are non reactive, then it means you do not have the infection now. However, the incubation period for hepatitis B is 180 days, so you will need to recheck until this window time.  A hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) level of less than 1 is considered negative. And if the anti HBs levels are high it indicates good immunity. In the meantime get yourself vaccinated for hepatitis B infection. Regards.
