Response from Dr. McGovern
Hepatitis C can be transmitted sexually but it is not common. Sexual transmission occurs in the context of other genital ulcers (eg, syphilis) or in associated with traumatic sex. There are several reports over the past several years of MSM acquiring acute HCV through sex also.
I think testing would be reasonable...
