HEP C Testing required or not
Dec 22, 2007

Hi, I am from India,35yrs male.I had tested after 8.5 months protected vaginal sex with csw at China.No other form of sexual activities were made.The results: HIV 1&2: Elisa-Negative HBsAg-Negative(Elisa) RPR(VDRL)-Nonreactive. My question is I didn't tested for Hep C .Do I need test for Hep C? If so, what test to be taken for this?This is my only one risky sexual exposure in my life? I never contracted any STD before in my life and no symptoms to be found with me.Can I move on with my life without testing of Hep C. I am so much confused. Please help and advice me.Thanks in advance.

Response from Dr. McGovern

You do not need testing since you had protected sex.
