oral hep c
May 6, 2012

Performed oral sex only on a woman whom later I found out has hep c. In nervous about upcoming test so was just asking what are the chances of hep c being passed on this way? It was dark so I am not sure if there was blood present. Thank you Dr. M

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not expect transmission through this route. HCV is mainly transmitted by blood to blood exposure.
