If HBsAg is positive it means you are infected with Hepatitis B. Get other values checked like Anti-HBsAg, HBeAg, Anti-HBcAg which will tell if you are contagious. Also get your Liver tests done. You need to know if you are a chronic sufferer from Hepatitis B or an acute infection and you can get the treatment as early as possible. Use condom for sex. Don't donate blood.
