HOW CAN A PERSON GET HEPATITIS C FROM HAVING SEX IF ONE PARTNER IS POSITIVE WITH HEPITIS C
Response from Dr. Fried
The risk of acquiring HCV from sexual contact is small, but not zero. If you are involved in a monogamous relationship with an HCV-positive partner, there are no specific recommendations for changing sexual practices, although common sense measures to prevent exposure to blood are still important.
Anyone having sex with multiple partners should always practice "safe sex" to minimize infection risk from all sexually transmitted diseases.
