Hi there,
HBs antigen is part of the virus. This antigen appear in the blood usually six to twelve weeks after infection. Since your test is positive you have hepatitis B. You will need additional tests to determine whether your infection is new or old, whether it is harmful or not and if you need treatment. In people who have been vaccinated against hepatitis B and have naturally cleared the virus anti HB s which are antibodies to hepatitis B will be present. You will need tests for hepatitis B surface antibody and hepatitis B core antibody. All three test results are needed in order to make a clear diagnosis. Consult an experienced doctor for opinion. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
