Hep-C and my babies
Nov 25, 2006

I am 61 years old and just found out I have Hep-C. I had a blood transfusion in 1963. I have 3 daughters, born in '66, '68 and '74. Are they infected also?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Most likely not...I would recommend that they get tested, but suspect they will be seronegative due to the low chance of transmission.

Any more injections?
