well i recently had a sexual exposure but i tested negative at 10 weeks
my results are
HBsAG (qualitative) negative
so i want to know can i get vaccination for hepatitus B now or should i wait until 3 month to be sure and then take vaccine please help?
when you get infected you can delay infection by immune globlins (anti-hbsag) and get vaccine to work
the immune globulins are antibodies extracted from the blood of people immune to hbv so when you get infected they block hbsag
of course immune globulins can stop the very small quantity of virus when you get infected but once the virus reaches the liver it produces such hi quantities of hbsag that there is nothing left to prevent the infection.
I have chronic hep b and had sexual intercourse with my wife. She had a test on hbsag and the result is negative, so i advised her to have vaccine 1st vaccine Dec.2011, 2nd vaccine Jan.2011 and her upcoming vaccination will be on june 2011. Can i infect my wife if we have sex between months of feb or march.????
