Hello and hope you are doing well.

If along with HBsAg, there is IgM anti-HBc, then it indicates an acute infection. If there is positive anti-HBc its a chronic infection. More than 90% of women found to be HBsAg-positive on routine screening will be HBV carriers. Based on the status of this the mother will be administered hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) and HBV vaccine. Also, newborns born to hepatitis B carriers should receive hepatitis vaccine AND hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) within 12 hours of birth.

Symptoms of hepatitis B would be jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever. Please discuss the possibilities with your consulting doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
