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.
Not sure if I received second HepA shot.
