Based on the history, presence of only HbSAg in the blood would be indicator of Acute Hepatitis B infection.

Acute hepatitis B usually subsides two to three weeks after symptoms appear, and the liver function usually returns to normal within 16 weeks, and does not require medical treatment.

If very severe, symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea are present, the affected person may require symptomatic treatment to restore fluids and electrolytes. There are no medications that can prevent acute hepatitis B from becoming chronic.

People acutely infected with HBV can spread the virus to others through sexual contact, or contact with their blood or bodily fluids. Hence you should use protection while your partner is positive for Hepatitis B.

Acute hepatitis B patients recover completely within six months and develop antibodies that give them a life-long immunity. Once repeat tests indicate absence of HbSAg, and Presence of Antibodies to HbSAg in the body, it would be a indicator that a person is aquired immunity to Hepatitis B.
