hep c and sex
Oct 22, 2007

my partner has hep c. Is he more contigious to me when I am on my period? Or is it only HIS blood we nned to worry about?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You need to be concerned about being exposed to his blood. Using condoms is protective although sexual transmission of HCV is not common - about 2 percent in monogamous couples.
