Hepatitis B test
HI,

I received a fellatio 3 months ago from a sex worker.

I did a Hepatitis B antigen test and antibosies test at 8 weeks and both were negatif.

I did also a Hepatitis A test which came with 0.55 value for Hepatitis A ( reference range - Non reactive if below 0.8) what does it mean that I had 0.55?

I also did a Hepatitis C test Antibody 3rd generation at 8 weeks - Negatif.

How accurate are such tests? should I retest at 3 months or later?

Thanks

you dont get hcv by sex so dont even consider that, you get hcv by healthcare settings mostly because only direct blood can trasmit infection

hbv is benigne in adults and cleared without damage by immune system, only 4% with damaged immune system dont clear

hav is always benigne, totally wasted money

the tests are realiable but you wasted money in this case, nothing to worry about

if you are scared of diseases get hav/hbv vaccine

hbv gets chronic at birth because there is no immune system at that time or very very young, not on adults

thank you for your reply, I was mainly concerned about Hepatitis B as on some sites they say 3 months for the window period.
