Hello doctor,

I had unprotected anal sex with the neighbor lady before three years, and after a week I got jaundice, and it suffered around one month, and I got treatment with some ayurvedic medicines and got relief. Then around three months later I tested for hepatitis B and C both, but the result was negative, but in LFT test my bilirubin was a little high, and I got a fatty liver grade one by the doctor. So I have the following questions that,

1. Can I get infected with hepatitis B and C in the future?

2. How can I overcome with high bilirubin?

3. My digestive system is also not as good as previous.

4. Will I suffer from any sexual infection in the future.

Hello doctor,

A negative test for hepatitis B and C, three months after that unprotected anal sex rules these out as a cause for your hepatitis. Perhaps it was another cause for hepatitis, may be hepatitis A which is transmitted through contaminated food rather than by sex. Hepatitis B and C are transmitted through unprotected sex or blood, e.g. transfusion or sharing needles.

So, these scenarios can pose a risk of hepatitis. For raised bilirubin, I suggest you consult a physician kindly. I also suggest you screen for hepatitis A. STDs can happen if you indulge in unprotected sex or sex with partners with high-risk behavior.
