cant find an answer
Aug 8, 2007

would you say that if i had a negative hcv test at 12 weeks after exposure that i can stop testing or should i test again later to be certain?

Response from Dr. McGovern

The CDC recommends testing at 4 to 6 weeks after exposure and then again at 4 to 6 months.

You should be relieved to know though that most serconversions occur by 3 months, so most likely you will have a good result.

Can you re-infect with Hep C after treatment?
hep c
