Good afternoon, Ibu Suhufam Mudia Thank you for consulting HealthReplies.com.


HBsAg is an antigen on the surface of hepatitis B virus cells so that positive / reactive HBsAg (R) indicates that there is an infection in your body both current (acute) or past (chronic), but if the result is negative / nonreactive ( NR) indicates there is no hepatitis B virus infection in your body.


We recommend that you do antigen-related tests for viruses if you have a risk factor for the virus, i.e.

- Unsafe sex that is changing partners and without a condom
- Blood exposure from people infected with hepatitis B
- Increased liver function
- injecting drug use

Some other tests that can be used to make a diagnosis are

- anti HBs that is to see immunity to the virus, will be positive in people who have had the hepatitis vaccine or have recovered from infection
- AntiHBC is showing acute or chronic infection by the hepatitis virus in the body

That's the thing we can say. May be useful. Thank you
