Hepatitis A

What is hepatitis A?

Hepatitis A is caused by a virus and can lead to an infection of the liver.

How is it transmitted?

The virus is transmitted by infected food or water (for example during a holiday) and sexual contact: anal-, anal-oral sex, pee seks and scat sex, sharing sex toys.

The virus is very contagious. Good hygiene is important, especially when you have anal and oral sex.


Two to eight weeks after infection general complaints may develop such as tireness, loss of appetite, nausea, flu-like symptoms, fever and pain in the top right of the abdomen. 

The white of the eye and the skin may turn yellow (jaundice). Urine may become darker in colour; stool may become lighter in colour. 

Preventing infection

Men who have sex with men (MSM) are advised to get tested and vaccinated against hepatitis A. You can get information about this topic at Violett!
