what are the risks of a man with hepatitis c having sex with a woman during her periods?
Response from Dr. McGovern
There are no formal figures of specific circumstances, like the one you ask about. All we know is that for monogamous couples, the risk is about 1 to 3 percent.
Use of condoms brings it to zero.
