Thanks for the query

The best way to know if u r having an active HBV infection is to do a HBeAg and HbsAg. If these both are negative then u have nothing to worry about. Wait for 6 months and repeat hbsag, most likely than not it will become negative. Hbv infection 96% of the times gets cured on its wn without any problems

have a healthy living
