Based on your latest tests, it seems you have fully recovered from an acute infection of hepatitis B. You have lost the HbsAg(non-reactive) and gained antibodies to the surface antigen, anti-HBs (reactive).

It begs the question: why take Entecavir in the first place?

To be sure, you should do a hbvdna test - it should come back as "undetectable".

Congratulations.

Her test results seem to indicate she has not been infected and  she has not been vaccinated. I believe it would be safe to have sex with your wife.
