In 1999 I took a dose of Hep B vaccination but never told to follow up on the other two doses so I did not. In March 2011 I did comprehensive general tests and HBAg was negative up till then. I then took 3 doses of Hep B vacinnation over the recommended span but in Dec 2011 during a random test I tested positive to HBAg. I was prescribed an antiviral drug which I took for 12months then I went for the HBAg test again and it was negative. I was told to repeat the test 3month after to ensure it was still negative and then get the vaccination again. I did exactly that. Tested negative to HBAg 3months after the initial time and then completed another dose of Hep B vaccination which ended in Dec 2013. To my surprise during a routine general test last month (Feb 2014) I tested positive to HBAg again. I am now totally confused about what exactly is going on in my body. Please can you advise me on the next steps?
