hep c transmission
Jun 12, 2014

Hi, I recently shared a rolled up note to snort a line with a group of friends , . I was the last person to have a line . It was really just a one off. I am extremely paranoid now . I'm so scared I have got hep c .

Response from Dr. Taylor

Hep C may be transmitted (passed) by sharing straws/bills used to snort drugs. So I do suggest getting tested. If the test is negative talk with your tester about getting retested in 3-6 months.
