What is Hepatitis C
Hepatitis C is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis C virus. It can cause inflammation (swelling) and fibrosis (scarring) of the liver tissue, and sometimes significant liver damage. Its is most often transmitted through the sharing of needles, the receiving of infected blood products, or unprotected sex.
Hepatitis C causes serious liver disease and effect millions of people worldwide. Many people with hepatitis C have no symptoms until the later stages but symptoms, should they occur, may include:
- Bleeding easily
- Bruising easily
- Poor appetite
- Yellow discoloration of the skin and eyes (jaundice)
- Dark-colored urine
- Itchy skin
- Fluid buildup in the abdomen (ascites)
- Swelling in the legs
- Weight loss
- Confusion, drowsiness and slurred speech (hepatic encephalopathy)
- Spider-like blood vessels on the skin (spider angiomas)
You should wait a minimum of 30 days from the time of sexual intercourse before taking your test. Hepatitis infections take a period of time to become detectable, and you should wait to ensure an accurate result.
You should get tested if:
- You have become sexually active
- You have had unprotected sex
- You are experiencing symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection
- You are entering into a new sexual relationship
- You have received a notification from a previous partner that they are infected (STIs can remain dormant for years or take up to three weeks to become detectible.)
