What type of Hepatitis do they test for in a standard STD test?

Asked by on October 13, 2013

I got blood drawn for STD testing today and the doctor said she was going to test for Hepatitis (B or C) I can’t remember which but it was only one type that she said. How come she didn’t test all of the Hepatitis’s (A, B, C etc)? Does testing for one type give indication of the others? Or are the other ones so uncommon that they aren’t tested for in a standard test? Or are the others not STDs? Just wondering, the office is closed until Monday so I wanted to just research a bit in the meantime. Thanks so much!
