Hello Princess, Thank you for the question.
HBsAg (hepatitis B surface antigen) and anti-HBs (immune substances / antibodies formed as a result of a reaction to hepatitis B virus infection) are tests to detect hepatitis B. Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver cells that can be caused by various health conditions but which most common is viral hepatitis infection. Antigens are protein particles found on the surface of the virus. If the HBsAg result is reactive (positive), it means that you have the hepatitis B virus or in other words you have hepatitis B. A non-reactive (negative) anti-HBs result means that your body has not produced antibodies to fight this infection. . Please have a discussion with your gynecologist with the results of this examination. The doctor will usually perform further blood tests. If you have hepatitis B, this virus can be passed on to your baby during labor. After your baby is born, a pediatrician will usually give you an injection of hepatitis B immunoglobulin and hepatitis B vaccination within 12 hours of birth.
