What is Hepatitis B?
Hepatitis B is an infection in the liver that can cause scarring of the organ, cancer or liver failure. It’s serious but if you get the hepatitis B as an adult, it shouldn’t last long.
If you have had hepatitis B before, you won’t get it again as the body will fight it off and once you’ve rid yourself of the infection, your body is now immune. Hepatitis B spread through blood, open sores and bodily fluids.

Testing for Hepatitis B

At InOut Labs, we include the Hepatitis Profile in our STD Panels. The Hepatitis Profile checks for hepatitis A, B and C.
Who Should Be Tested
Although we recommend that you consider having the hepatitis B test as part of routine STD testing, it’s important to be tested if you’ve been in contact with someone who is infected with the virus.
If you have used injection drugs or have had unprotected sex with an infected person, be sure to get yourself tested.
If you live with someone that has the virus, we also recommend that you are tested as well.
