Which sexually transmitted infections does the Hepatitis Screen test for?
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
How soon after a sexual encounter can I get tested?
The Better2Know Hepatitis Screen combines private tests for three types of Hepatitis: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. This screen requires a minimum period of 28 days, or four weeks, of incubation, which is the length of time between the incident you are concerned about and getting tested.
Which samples does the Hepatitis Screen require?
The screen uses a single blood sample to detect three types of Hepatitis infection. There are no painful swabs or fasting requirements included in this screen.
What happens at my appointment?
Your appointment will be with a nurse or clinician who will collect your sample swiftly and efficiently. Once the blood sample has been collected, it will be sent to our highly accredited laboratory to be analysed.
When will my confidential results be available?
The results of your Hepatitis Screen will be ready as early as one working day after your sample has arrived at our certified laboratory.
How will my results be reported?
As soon as all your results are back from the laboratory, you will be contacted by a member of our sexual health advisory team. They will call you to discuss your results, unless you would prefer to contact us instead. In the meantime, you can access your results as they come in by logging into your secure Patient Area online.
What if my screen is reactive?
If your screen is reactive, we will provide confirmatory testing at no extra charge. Better2Know can arrange private consultations with a network of experienced doctors situated across Europe. We will also refer you to a specialist service, if necessary.
If you would prefer, you can take your results to your personal doctor or sexual health centre.
