Antihbs of 16...sex with hep b person?

Hi,

I am a kidney transplant patient for 2 years now...my partner (met recently since transplant) is hep b positive...Ii was vaccinated two years back and I recently checked my antihbs level and it is 16...is it ok to have sex with him? Am I at risk of getting hep b???? What do you think? I read that kidney patients ideally need 100 level but level 16 is also protective in normal person...I'm worried if it would affect our relationship....
