Response from Dr. McGovern

You need to discuss your hepatitis C status with your partner. Although sexual transmission of hepatitis C is uncommon, it does occur. Your partner needs to be given choices at to whether she wants to take ANY risks at all. Condoms will be preferred if the answer is NO RISK. Anal sex is more risky than vaginal sex due to the issue of increased risk of trauma and exposure to blood.

I recommend condoms to all my patients to prevent all sexually transmitted diseases.

Dr. McGovern
