Hepatitis C

Unlike milder hepatitis infections, Hepatitis C, or HCV, is likely to lead to long-lasting internal damage. Get screened for Hepatitis C on STCClinic.com to be sure you’re virus free.

The word ‘hepatitis’ comes from the Greek words ‘hêpar,’ liver and ‘itis,’ inflammation. There are a few varieties of Hepatitis, including A, B, and C. Hepatitis C spreads via blood-to-blood contact.

An estimated 2% of the world population is infected with HCV, and some 399,000 infected people died of the disease in 2016. There’s currently no vaccine to prevent HCV infections, but treatment is possible for those who have contracted the virus.

Unlike Hepatitis A or B, Hepatitis C often remains in the bloodstream for up to 85% of affected individuals. It can pave the way for chronic symptoms that, eventually, cause irreparable liver damages and even cancers.

When should I get tested for STDs?

Honestly? If you’re sexually active, the best time to get tested for STDs is now.
Many of the most common STDs don’t show any symptoms -- and are still transmissible. You can have an STD and unknowingly transmit it to others. If you suspect you have contracted an STD through unprotected sexual contact, sharing drug injection equipment, or by coming in contact with infected blood, it is important that you get tested as soon as possible to avoid any health complications.

Finishing up treatment? Take a follow-up test to make sure you’re in the clear.
