Some time ago I was rejected as donor and received following rejection letter:
Just wanted to inform you that there was a positive infectious disease result for Hepatitis B. Unfortunately, we cannot take donors into the program with a positive Hepatitis B test result due to the inventory possibly being compromised.
And the following test results were attached to the rejection letter:
Hepatitis Bc IgM Ab: NON-REACTIVE (Anti-HBc IgM)
Hepatitis Bs Ag: NON-REACTIVE (HBsAg)
Hepatitis Bc Ab: REACTIVE (HBcAb)
Obviously, I don't want to be a donor, if I pose risk to someone else. So I am fine with their judgment, if it is in best interest of others.
However, now I am curious, especially after I found this CDC website and I am trying to understand under which category I fall under.
My understanding is that I fall under "Immune due to natural infection" and that it is actually impossible for me to infect others via sexual intercourse or if someone else uses my blood?
