anal sex and hepC
Aug 10, 2001

How easily is Hep C transmitted through uprotected anal sex?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

I think Hepatitis C is easily transmitted through unsafe anal safe whether it is heterosexual or homosexual. There is a small epidemic going on in NY of acute hepatitis C in gay men having unsafe sex and that correlates with the rise in new cases of HIV. Be safe! DTD
