boyfriend and hep c
Apr 30, 2005

I found out in 1999 that I had hep c . I have had the same boyfriend for the last 10yrs.I keep telling him to get tested but he says he feels fine. How likely is it that he might have hep c as well.We never were condoms.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your boyfriend should be tested. It doesn't matter that he feels fine. HCV is uncommonly transmitted through sex, about 1 to 3 percent. However, he should still be tested. Dr. McGovern
