how long could you detect hep c in your blood result after exposure!
Response from Dr. McGovern
Hepatitis C antibody is usually detected in the bloodstream by about 12 weeks of infection. A minority of patients are detected later on within 12 to 24 weeks. The virus itself can be detected in as little as a week after exposure.
