hepatitis c oral sex
Sep 9, 2007

I have been in a relationship with a male.I am female.I give him oral and i let him ejaculate in my mouth 3 or 4 times a week for about a year.I found out today that he has hcv.what are the odds i have contracted hcv?he never ejaculates in my vagina because he said he did not want to get me pregnant.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would consider it extremey low. I would discuss these exposures with your physician and consider getting baseline laboratories done to reassure you, but suspect you will be hepatitis C negative.

I would also get vaccinated against hepatitis B if you have never had this immunization to increase your protection in general.
