|Hep C from anal w/ bleeding
Feb 21, 2005
I is it likely to have contracted Hep C from anal sex if there was no bleeding?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Hepatitis C can be uncommonly transmitted through sexual intercourse - but it does occur in 2 to 3 percent of monogamous couples. If this is your only possible exposure, then small tears certainly can occur with anal intercourse that you may have been unaware of.
