worried about son
Mar 12, 2005
Recently my son has been involved intimately with a girl who has hepatitus C what are the chances of him testing positive. I know she has given him hickeys and I'm sure they are having sex!
Response from Dr. McGovern
Sexual transmission of HCV is uncommon. Among monogamous couples the risk is about 1-2 percent.
