I don't know from where and when I have got this hepatitis B virus, but I was diagnosed two years ago, and I ignored. But another blood test was done and I was found to be infected with HBsAg.

I'm 21 years of age. The last time I was vaccinated was last 2008 and yesterday I had blood test and they found out that I'm a HBV carrier. I'm so devastated as well as shocked, it really affects my work. I think its early stage.
