What Is Hepatitis?

It is a common virus that can seriously affect the liver. It can cause liver cancer and failure. There are 3 versions – A, B, and C. Each version of the infection can be contracted in different ways but all of them can be transmitted during sex. Therefore it is classified as a sexually transmitted disease.

A hepatitis test should be done regularly. Millions of people have this disease, pass it to other people, and do not know it. Although there are several ways to contract this virus, it is considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD). A full STD test or stand-alone hepatitis test is the only way to know whether or not you have it.

A person may have an STD without knowing it, especially hepatitis. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are 19 million new STD infections every year in the United States. People with chronic hepatitis can live with it for decades without having symptoms or feeling sick. Many people don’t know how or when they got infected. That's why routine testing is important. It is the only way to know whether or not you have an infection. Getting a Hepatitis test is fast, confidential, and affordable. Order your test online now and get quick results. You can order a partial test (like for hepatitis only) or a full panel std testing that will check for all sexually transmitted diseases.

What is Hepatitis A?

Research shows this is the most common form of the virus and usually goes away without treatment. It is generally not a recurring infection. It is spread through the feces (also known as "poop"). If a person comes in contact with the feces of someone that has it, they can catch it too. Fecal matter (small or microscopic bits of poop) can be transmitted in several ways.

Three common ways to come in contact with Hepatitis A are: 1) in the drinking water or food that has been contaminated with feces, 2) in bathrooms (from toilet seats or when someone doesn’t wash their hands after wiping themselves, then touches something like a handle, faucet, or light switch), and 3) through anal sex.

People who are infected may have yellowing of the skin or eyes (called jaundice), darker urine, pain in the abdomen, nausea, fever, diarrhea, and/or a loss of appetite. A person can spread the virus to someone as soon as two weeks before showing symptoms, and during the entire time when symptoms occur. They can also spread it if they have no symptoms at all. Most times children who have been infected do not show symptoms. That is why it is important for people to always wash their hands after changing a baby’s diaper. The only way to know if you have it or not is with a Hepatitis A test. Order now.
