how can u tell if u have hepatitis b or c, before a blood test is done?

Im curious, im getting a liver biopsy done pretty soon due to the fact that i may have hemochromotosis. Im supposed to get a blood test for B and C. Ive had problems with acid reflux and gout so I got an endoscopy done, and my liver seems to be normal, but is it still possible to have hepatitis b or c, and not know it. Ive also been having dry coughs. I had unprotected sex back in january 16, but wondering if anyone could help me. Got tested for Hiv may 9th. I think its conclusive. Are there certain signs which would tell you if u have any form of hepatitis or not, besides jaundice. Im 20 and soo freaked out.

first, it is very hard to get infected with hepatitis "C" from sex. Hep "B" can be caught from sex. so i do not think you have to worry about "C". you will find that most on this forum are well versed on "C".  just google "hepatitis B symptoms"

Symptoms of hepatitis include dark urine color and light colored stools (just the opposite of normal) joint pain and fatigue.

However, do not rely on symptoms.   It will drive you crazy.  Get the test and hope for the best.  I have a feeling you will be neg.

Travis - it appears your worries are about having unprotected sex.

While diseases can happen at any point - your admitted one time fling without protection will probably cause you no problems. *PROBABLY*.

So kick back - don't do it again... Grow up... Find someone you love --- and remain protected until both are tested and monogamous.

Stop worrying about catching things --- live your life. Trust me - you'll know when you've actually caught something.

If you're really worried - go get your bloodwork tested - go get tests done - and stop worrying.

All in all - you'll only make yourself sick.

Don't worry Travis --- all these things are NOTHING if tomorrow the world ends.

That's probably not going to happen --- and neither are most of your worries.

And Travis. Just a hint. You really WON'T grow hair on your palms. I PROMISE.

STOP! trusting that God will just "take care of it" its not going to happen. You are a part of God, so if you want to do the right thing, Just tell your husband what is going on. If you just found out, and can show medical records that you didn't know previously, I'm sure he will understand. If he doesn't, he is a *****, and you did the right thing by telling him.
