Some doctors say that today, in ordinary sex (not anal) and paste exceptions it is not possible to transmited hcv Is it true? Thank you

Response from Dr. McGovern

HCV is uncommonly transmitted through sex except through anal sex with trauma which leads to blood to blood exposure. Oral sex has not been linked to HCV infection.
