11 weeks pregnant, my blood test results came back a couple of days ago. It's not the first time I've been screened for Heps B and C plus HIV, but results for immigration purposes always came back a nice reassuring "negative".
This time, the results were as follows:
HBsAG - E 0.26
HCV - E 0.05
HIV - E 0.05
Anti HBs E 0.0
When I flapped the results in my doctor's face and hyperventilated, she waved them away and assured me that anything between 0-1 was fine.
Could somebody explain what exactly these results mean? Have I been exposed to any of the viruses in the past? Do I have traces of antibodies, and if so, how?
WHY AREN'T ALL THE RESULTS A BIG FAT UNAMBIGUOUS ZERO?!
Will my baby be okay?
Please, please help.
