Blood Clot
Apr 22, 2001

What do you mean when you say blood clot? You say the HEP. C can live longer in a blood clot because it stays moist. Is blood on a piece of paper considered a clot?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

No. Blood in large drops that does not dry. Blood on paper is dry right away. That is still a minor issue. If you are worried, go get tested! Good luck! DTD

Hep C Question
Does lubrication and duration of intercourse play a role in the transmission of the disease?
