Positve HBc AB

I recently had a hep B pnael ran on me. My results are as followed:

HBs AG- Negative
HBs AB- Negative
HBc AB- Positve

all my test were negative EXCEPT the HBc AB. The test was also ran 6 months ago and it said the same thing. The dr. is saying I have never been vaccinated (by the blood work) but i am really sure I have been. I don't do drugs, been with the same man for 9 1/2 years, and to be honest have no idea on how I would have came in contact with this disease. They recently did the Hep B DNA test also. I am confused with all this. Do I have Hep B, am I contagious? Does this mean my husband cheated? <----Husbands swears eh has never been unfaithful, and I want to belive that...but I am lost and going crazy. Any real guidence would be appreciate. Thanks in advance.
