You should test your HBsAb (antibody to the HBV surface antigen). HBsAb level >=10 mIU/mL is considered protective.

You need to know his viral load to get an idea of how contagious he is. If he is under treatment his hbv dna is probably undetectable in such case there is no chance to get infected even through unprotected sex.

thanks for your reply. he is under treatment from 1 year, his hbv dna count is <20 IU/mL and he is still under medication. im more worried because im a feeding mother for 9 months baby. i was 5 months pregnant when he tested positive, i negative. since then we are not in contact.
