right time for pregnancy
Jul 15, 2007

h.diagnosed with hep c a week back. alt between 130-150 for 6 months, got hep c antibodies tested last july, were negative. no physical complaints except vague right quadrant discomfort. want to get pregnant. please advice what is the right time? can i delay treatment and get pregnant with current status?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would explore with your physician what could have been your risk and whether that risk was very recent. Early treatment of hepatitis C right after infection is associated with a high chance of eradicating the virus.

was my daughter put at risk?
