Dear Doctor, PLease advise if Hepatitis A is transmitted through vaginal sex. I surfed on net and found that oral contact with Anus of the infected person or anal sex or the infected person does not wash hand properly after stools is when you get infected . Please advise.

Hepatitis A is transmitted by feco-oral route only.
Stop having anal sex. It can be dangerous.
