Hepatitis B/C Testing

If a blood test for hep b/c was negative at 3 months post exposure would I need further testing at a later date or should I take this as conclusive?  I've had tension and mild pain around liver area but not sure if its related to stress or something else like kidney stones.

Hi there,
Almost 90% of healthy adults who are infected with the hepatitis B virus recover and develop protective antibodies against future hepatitis B infections. If you are still doubtful you may need repeat test after 3 months. If there is abdominal pain consult your doctor he may advise ultrasound abdomen. Do write to me again.
Best luck and regards!
