Response from Dr. Taylor

It sounds as though you are protected against hepatitis A. This infection is spread via ingestion (eating) of feces (poop) contaminated by the hep A virus. It can be acquired sexually with sex involving feces/poop e.g. anal intercourse (sex in the butt). The infection typically goes away on its own and does not cause ongoing liver damage. In most cases it is not spread sexually but via contaminated water in places without the resources for a safe water supply.
