hepatitis c
Oct 2, 2011

if a girl has hepatitis c and has unprotected sex with her partner while on her period, can he get hepatitis c?

Response from Dr. McGovern

There are scant data on this but I would certainly have a greater degree of concern about transmission in this situation. Once study of 16 women found that shedding of HCV RNA in the genital tract was associated with menses (the menstrual period).

If you were not wearing a condom, it would be reasonable to get tested for HCV (and HBV and HIV if these are of concern).
