Response from Dr. McGovern
HCV is not transmitted casually. It is transmitted mainly by injection drug use with sharing of needles or equipment. It is uncommonly spread by intercourse. The risk among monogamous couples is about 1 to 2 percent.
Condoms are protective. We also suggest avoiding the sharing of razors.
