cocaine, crack, hep c and hiv
May 19, 2007

I use to use cocaine and during that time I shared a crack pipe once, shared bills to snort drugs. never injected anything. I have not used in years, the last time I could have gotten infected was 2 years ago what are my chances of catching it. Thanks

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would say extremely low, but there is only one way to know for sure. Get tested and then you will not have to think about this again.

hep c contracted from open cut?
another lab result question
