|LESBIANS & HEP C
Oct 14, 2003
I AM IN A WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH MY GIRLFRIEND OF 3 YEARS. SHE HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH HEP.C. WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR SEX LIFE? I HAVE READ NOTHING SPECIFIC ANYWHERE? DO WE LIVE WITH MASTURBATION OR LESBIAN BED DEATH?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
There is no real data on lesbian sex and HCV. I have seen at least one person who was infected this way, although she is also a boxer. Remember normal body secretions have very little if any virus, it is really only blood. I would suggest you avoid sex during menstruation and avoid sharing traumatic toys and razors and toothbrushes. Other than that, the risks of transmitting HCV is vanishingly low. Good luck! DTD
