There are several types of hepatitis – each caused by a different hepatitis virus. Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that can be contracted through unprotected sex, using contaminated needles, or other causes.
You should be tested for Hepatitis B if you have symptoms of an infection or have been exposed to the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV). If you have chronic liver disease, you should also be tested. You may want to consider the Hepatitis Panel, which tests for a variety of the most common variations of hepatitis.
Common Variations of Hepatitis:
• Hepatitis A can be caused by consuming contaminated water or food.
• Hepatitis B can be contracted through sharing contaminated needles, having unprotected sex, or being exposed to infected blood from another person.
• Hepatitis C can be spread by blood from contaminated needles during drug use or tattooing as well as by having unprotected sex.
Why Do I Need It?:
If left untreated, hepatitis can lead to fatigue or more serious issues like liver failure. What’s most disturbing is how the hepatitis virus can remain dormant in your body for years and cause no outward physical symptoms. In fact, Hepatitis B can have an incubation period of 1 to 6 months after exposure, so if you test negative today, you may want to consider retesting again at a later date (depending on the date of the exposure).
