about hcv being in semen
Aug 8, 2007

i asked a question about hepatitis c being found in semen and you said yes. but then why do people say its so unlikely to transmit sexually?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Infections can be present in certain body fluids - but that doesn't mean that that particular body fluid is an efficient vehicle for transmission to a particular target cell of the body.
