Hi there,
Since your HBsAb is negative combined with a negative hepatitis B surface antigen result, indicates a resolved infection without risk of transmission. The presence of HBeAg implies high infectivity. HBeAg is usually present for 1½-3 months after the acute illness. In your case since it is negative infectivity is reduced. It is best to correlate test results with clinical findings. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. I hope it helps.
Best luck ad regards!
