I am a gay man who had Hepatitis B 10 years ago, cleared it completely and have immunity. My partner recently contracted Hepatitis B. We are in a monogamous relationship and have had unprotected sex for 4 years. Is it possible that he still contracted it from me or do I have a not so monogamous partner?

only gentic testing can tell 99% where the virus is from if it is your same virus.is he cronic or cleared?
if you had no sex with him during hbsag positive and hbvdna positve period it wasnt you to pass the virus.for 100% extra security check that you have no occult hbv, only very sensitive hbvdna pcr with sensibility till 6iu/ml or nat can detect occult hbv, but i guess occult hbv is very difficult to spread to others since hbsag and hbvdna are negative
if cronic he may have it already since birth or very young, to get it cronic as adult immune system must be damaged by drug addiction or immune suppressive drugs
