Response from Dr. McGovern

Sexual transmission of hepatitis C occurs infrequently. You could consider baseline testing to alleviate any anxiety but I think your risks are low for hepatitis C.

Sex with condoms with anyone who is not your monogamous partner is best.

Dr. McGovern

Not sure if I received second HepA shot.
chronic HepB
