oral Sex
Jan 1, 2007

If a non infected person performs oral sex on their partner with hep c, then can they get it?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Transmission of hepatitis C requires blood to blood exposure. HCV transmission through oral sex has not been proven. Sexual transmission of hepatitis C is uncommon but the risk of this increases with traumatic sex, like anal intercourse.
