|dormant hepatitis c.
Nov 20, 2010
I recently started dating someone who has Hep.C. it is dormant. He does not know how he contracted it or if he was born with it. Am i at risk of contracting it if it is dormant. What does dormant hep.c. mean. We are not yet sexualy active but i need to consider all my options and safety.

I am not sure what he means but...he may be referring to the fact that he doesn't have any virus.
Some people just have the antibody...because they cleared the virus....
