Feb 16, 2002

Response from Dr. Fried

The risk of sexual transmission of HCV is very small. Since you obviously don't know that person very well, you should also be concerned about other sexually transmitted diseases. Go to your local health department for screening and education about preventing sexually transmitted diseases.
