Hi, the incubation period (the time between initial contact with the virus and onset of the disease) for hepatitis B ranges from 45 to 180 days. So, if you have tested negative after 6 months, it means you do not have the infection. However to protect yourself have yourself vaccinated and check Anti Hbs levels. If it is above 10 IU/L it is considered to be protective. Regards.
