Response from Dr. McGovern

Your physician is just trying to be thorough and I think that as long as you obviously have this on your mind, it would be better to get tested. Testing for hepatitis B and hepatitis C and any other sexually transmitted diseases is reasonable, if you are concerned about these as well. I think your mind will then be at ease.
