how soon can you tell if you are infected

Response from Dr. McGovern

If you are asking how soon after transmission with either hepatitis A, B, or C can you tell that you have acquired infection? The answer is that any of these infections can be asymptomatic - without symptoms.

If you are concerned about a risk exposure, you should talk to your doctor regarding testing.
