about hepitis c?
May 25, 2007

how can you get hepitis c,b by any other way instead of just sex or useing a dirty needle????????

Response from Dr. McGovern

Hepatitis B is transmitted sexually and through injection drug use. Hepatitis C is transmitted very easily through IDU and uncommonly through sex.

Blood transfusion used to be a route; but almost never occurs now through thorough testing of the blood.

Tatoos should be obtained at official tatoo parlors and not with shared needles from friends.
