He is Negative, Am I
Jun 16, 2000

My boyfriend (100% faitful we'll say)of one year just got a test and the result was negative. Does this mean anything for my status or could I still have it?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

You don't say negative for what. HIV and hepatitis B are much more likely to be transmitted sexually than hepatitis C. You should be vaccinated for hepatitis B if you are not immune and you should be tested for all sexually transmitted diseases yourself too, assuming that he is not your first sexual partner. DTD

when should I start HCV treatment?
