WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF HEPATITIS?
There are many types of Hepatitis, but the three most common are:
Hepatitis A is mainly transmitted by consuming water or food contaminated by the stool of a person infected with Hepatitis A.
Hepatitis B is transmitted via contact with infectious body fluids, such as blood, semen or vaginal secretions that contain the hepatitis B virus. Injection drug use, unprotected sex, or sharing razors with an infected person increases the risk of contracting hepatitis B. For some people, hepatitis B infection can become chronic.
Like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C is contracted via direct contact with infected body fluids, typically through injection drug use and unprotected sex.
