The Hepatitis virus has multiple variants, which all can be transmitted through condomless anal sex. At the M Clinic, we can test for your immunity to Hepatitis A and B. If you are not immune and classify as Men who have sex with Men (MSM), you are eligible for free vaccinations. If unsure about your Hepatitis immunity or if you believe you have been exposed, call one of our nurses (on 9227 0734 and dial 1 to speak to the nurses) and explain your situation and they will triage you appropriately.
Hepatitis C can be transmitted through condomless anal sex, fisting without gloves and intravenous drug use. At M Clinic we test for Hepatitis C at least annually with MSM. While Hepatitis C cannot be vaccinated against, it is easily treated with PBS-subsidised medication. If you believe you have been exposed to Hepatitis C, you can call one of our nurses or alternatively call Hepatitis WA on (08) 9227 9800 to discuss your situation.
