Can you please help me to understand my results if anyone can.

Hi anonymous54,
I’m sorry to hear that you got a positive result whilst you are pregnant. Regarding your results, one of our @ScienceExperts will be able to help you in interpreting your results soon.


I lost my baby​:sweat::sweat: due to depression @ScienceExperts @Mylisa

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, @anonymous54. That’s terrible and I hope you are getting the support that you need during this challenging time.

Regarding your results, these are consistent with a chronic hepatitis B infection, and the moderate viral load means there can be some risk in infecting others through (for example) blood to blood contact. There is no knowing when you were actually infected with this, though the majority of people with chronic HBV infection were exposed when they were children.

The next steps with regard to your liver health is to check if there is any previous injury using a fibroscan test. But as you can see from posts in this forum, this condition can be managed and people with hep b can live long and normal lives regardless.

Wishing you strength during this tough time.


@ThomasTu Thank u so much for your reply.

But why GP said, it could be acute??

because you got c core body positve.

Dear @anonymous54 ,

If total anti-HBc is positive, then it means you have been exposed to HBV in the past or have a current HBV infection.

If anti-HBc IgM is positive, then it is likely that your infection is acute and recently acquired.

Hope this helps,

Thank u Thomas, So my my viral load is Not too high Right???

Do i need any medication with this viral load or not??

Dear @anonymous54,

Treatment eligibility would depend on several other factors in your case:

  • level of liver fibrosis (treat if >F2)
  • levels of ALT (treat if persistently >2xupper limit normal)
  • risk of transmission (treat if you’re doing something where there’s a high risk of transmission to others)
  • family history of liver cancer (treat if there is)

You may also consider it if you are >30 years old. This is all according to the EASL treatment guidelines -
