My boyfriend of 5yrs. recently found out he has HCV. we've had unprotected sex the whole time. His viral load is negetive. Also, I am HCV negetive. Do i have a high risk for getting it through unprotected sex? Should I be routinely checked for it if I continue to stay in this relationship?

Hepatitis B is a viral hepatitis virus that is much more easily transmitted through sex. A vaccine is available for Hepatitis B.
