HEP C and broken gums
Nov 21, 2004

i recently had an encounter with a positive hepC woman. i am a woman as well, and my concern is, though we did not have oral sex, we did kiss a lot, and i have wisdom teeth coming in, and my gums are broken. am i at risk??? please, help!! this was an affair, i am fearful of infecting my life partner

Response from Dr. McGovern

People do not get hepatitis C from kissing so I would not pursue testing for this. Dr. McGovern
