Nov 10, 2003
Can Hepitis C be transmitted through sexual contact? Whether it be oral or vaginal? Can a person with this, trasmit it in ANYWAY,kissing,touching,sexually?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Anything is possible. However in a recent study presented at the Liver meeting there was no risk from oral sex. The risk from vaginal sex was extremely low. The risk from anal sex, however was the highest. Safe sex of course is safe sex so you neen not worry. Kissing and touching are no risk at all. Stay safe! and get your hepatitis A and B vaccines! DTD
