  • Abdominal pain
  • Jaundice (yellow color to eyes and skin)
  • Dark colored urine
  • Light colored stool
  • “flu-like” symptoms

How You Can Get It:

Spread during vaginal, anal, and oral sex with someone who has hepatitis B. Spread also by contact with infected blood. Through sharing needles for drug or steroid use as well.

 Long-term Effects if Untreated:

  • You can give hepatitis B to your sexual partner(s) or someone you share a needle with.
  • Some people recover completely.
  • Some people cannot be cured. Symptoms go away, but they can still give hepatitis B to others.
  • Can cause permanent liver damage.
