Hello, I'm in really weird situation. I had some tests and my blood test showed Hep B surface Ag (HBsAg) positive and Anti HBc (IgG/IgM) positive. The weird thing is that I had my vaccine when I was a child (Engerix B) and in 2008 year I had repeat of it. It seems like I have infection but for over a year I was only with my boyfriend who was tested as negative. I didn't have any recent surgery, anything really. Tomorrow I'm going to different place to test my blood again but in this moment it looks just strange for me.
You can take hepatitis B from many sources, for example using razors or toothbrush that came into contact with someone infected. I too got vaccined and last year i discovered i have it, as you without having sexual relationships with anybody else besides my wife which doesn't have it .
I was in the same situation as you, i don't know how i got this virus, i never had sexual relationships with anyone beside my wife, she doesn't have it. She has antibodies, i sonehow come into contact with it .
She had a vaccine like i did, some years ago. But doesn't work for everybody . We suspect she got infected from me and developed antibodies, but we will check hbc igm to see whether is from my or vaccine
