Yes: There are multiple different types of hepatitis, only some of which are due to viruses. Even among those due to viruses, there are several different varieties, only some of which are passed through sexual contact. Lately in particular, hepatitis A has been a problem nationwide and is spread nonsexually. See your doctor or ask for a consult here if you have more detailed questions. Good luck.
