Sep 18, 2011

Hi, I have read in the forums even if the person giving the blowjob has bleeding gums and hiv this is a very low risk but what if they have hep c, is it still a very low risk? Thanks

Response from Dr. McGovern

Yes, I am not aware of any proven case of transmission by this route.

How do you know if you had acute Hep C?
Non interferon treatment
