The Hepatitis B Antibody Test is conducted to identify the presence of antibodies in your blood, indicating a past hepatitis B infection. Hepatitis B has the potential to cause severe liver damage and is transmitted through various means, including unprotected sexual contact, sharing needles, or exposure to bodily fluids from an infected individual. Additionally, mothers can transmit the virus to their babies. It's important to note that the presence of antibodies detected by this test does not guarantee immunity from hepatitis B.

In Males & Females
The interpretation of Hepatitis B antibody blood test results is the same for both males and females.

However, in pregnant women, Hepatitis B screening is often part of routine prenatal care. If a pregnant woman tests negative for Hepatitis B surface antibodies, vaccination may be recommended to protect both the mother and the newborn from HBV transmission.
