TRANSMISSION OF HEPATITIS C AFTER TREATMENT
Jun 18, 2006

I HAVE A FRIEND WHO WAS TREATED FOR HEPATIS C 4 YEARS AGO AND ALL RECENT BLOODWORK SHOW NO SIGNS OF THE DISEASE. IS HE STILL A CARRIER AND CAN HE STILL TRANSMITT THE DIESEAS SEXUALLY?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Treatment can cure hepatitis C. It is great news that he has such a wonderful result from treatment.

I would still have safe sex if this friend is your sexual partner to prevent transmission of any other infectious disease that you may not be aware of.
