Hepatitis C Test
As Seen On ABC's Shark Tank
Who should take this test?
Hepatitis C is a bloodborne virus that is spread when blood from an infected individual enters the body of someone who is not infected. The most common way to contract Hepatitis C is through needles (sharing needles for drug use or healthcare workers that have accidental sticks with Hepatitis C contaminated needles from infected patients). Pregnant women infected with Hepatitis C can spread the virus to their children during pregnancy. Less common ways to spread Hepatitis C include sexual contact, sharing personal care items like razors, and getting body modification procedures, such as tattoos and piercings, in non-sterile environments. The CDC recommends that anyone born between 1945 and 1965 be tested for Hepatitis C. Individuals at risk for getting Hepatitis C include individuals who use or previously used intravenous drugs, anyone who received a blood transfusion or organ donation prior to 1992, individuals who received blood clotting factors prior to 1987, individuals on dialysis for kidney failure, anyone who is HIV positive, anyone born to a mother with Hepatitis C, or anyone who has received some type of body modification without sterile instruments.

What will my results tell me?
This test will, with >99% accuracy, tell you whether or not you have been infected with Hepatitis C. As with all of EverlyWell’s tests, our at-home STD Test is delivered in discreet packaging and taken in the privacy of your own home. Once you return your test sample to our lab and your sample is processed, you’ll be notified via email when your results are ready.

What guidance will I get with my results?
The Hepatitis C test checks whether or not you test positive for Hepatitis C. In the event that your test results are abnormal, a board-certified physician in your state will contact you at no additional cost to discuss your particular case and prescribe medication where applicable. We take customer privacy very seriously and only you will have access to this information. As is the case with all STD testing - whether through EverlyWell or your doctor – we may be required by law to report positive test results to certain state health departments. This is only done to track infection prevalence. If you test positive for Hepatitis C, EverlyWell’s physician network will report this data to your state health board for tracking. In rare cases you may not receive a definitive result because of early infection or inadequate sampling and repeat testing is suggested. Don’t take a chance on your sexual health. Know where you stand with our at-home Hepatitis C test.
