My doctor said I cured Hep C will it come back?
Nov 7, 2013

I was told by my doctor that I had Hep C. Then was told that my body had cured it on its own. Will it come back? Can it come back?

Response from Dr. Taylor

Once the hepatitis C virus goes away on its own, which is sometimes called spontaneous clearance, it is gone and cannot come back. However we can catch hepatitis C again, so talk with your doctor about how to decrease your risk of getting re-infected.

hep c replicates better in pregnant women and their babies?
