Response from Dr. McGovern

The first thing to know is why your husband's liver function tests are abnormal. LFTs can be abnormal because of liver disease from viruses or other diseases. LFTs can also be abnormal because of side effects of medications. Even if it is a viral cause of hepatitis, hepatitis A for example, would not necessarily be acquired through sex.

I would not jump to any conclusions and I would keep the lines of communication open with your husband. I would also refrain from having intercourse until you know what kind of hepatitis he does have.
