One week before my HBsAG test was positive in the blood bank when I was trying to reserve blood for my wife for her deliverey but her results wer negative ( Thank god ) and even in the month of May 2012.
My question is how did I have this virus as she doesn't have ? my baby hep b vaccine is due on 3rd of march ?
should i request them to vaccinate now itself instead of waiting for another 5 weeks ?
I have symptoms like ......
1) yellow colour urine
2) Black tools
3) loads of sleeping
what it means ? I am going to meet doctor tomorrow for testing ....
There are two types of hbv, chronic and acute. Chronic you get from childhood and acute at adulthood. You can get hbv through blood or other body liquids. Infected Adults normally recover after 6 month.
You can check if you are chronic or acute by antihbc igM test.
You may be inactive carrier of virus and not be very infectious, that is why your whife is not infected, or you may also have acute infection that you have got recently.
Anyway the baby is the only one at risk, so must be vaccinated asap.
