help with reading results

Just foud out results

ANTI HBs-negative
what does it mean - acute or cronic?

and my husbend

ANTI HBs-negative

can it be possible that I am cronic and not infected him? if he is infected and fight off virus he will be
ANTI HBs positive or I am wrong?

Can that mean I am acute and I still have chances to become immune?

Please need advice fast!
I wish everyone Happy and Healty New Year!

Unless your husband was recently infected and too early for detection, then his test results show that he has never been infected with Hep B and doesn't have it.  He should get vaccinated right away though.  

For yourself, was your IGM anti hbc positive or negative?  A positive would indicate an recent infection and in the acute stage most likely.  If it is negative then it is possible that you may be chronic.

One thing about your anti hbc result is that if your HBsAg is positive, then the anti hbc should be positive too.  However, you are negative, so I am not sure what that means.  Someone with more knowledge can answer that for you on here.

test igm hbc ab, hbc ag and hbvdna (with detection under 104copies/ml), alt/ast

if igm and hbvdna if one of the two is positive you are in acute stage or just been infected

i don't remember exactly but the first sign of infection is hbsag them antibodies for hbcag (detected by igm) and after hbvdna and alt elevation
