Risk from my friend
Dec 13, 2007

if I have unprotected sex with an old girlfriend that caught hep-c, but says she is now neg ----how risky is this ?

Response from Dr. McGovern

If your girlfriend was HCV positive, she is now HCV positive also. However, maybe she was told that she cleared her virus as some people do.

I would still strongly advise protected sex since that is the best way to protect yourself against many other STDs including HIV.
