IF EXPOSED TO HCV DOES IT MEANS THAT YOU HAVE ALSO BEEN EXPOSED TO HIV AS WELL?
Response from Dr. Young
Hi and thanks for posting.
We're talking about possible exposures here- since many people who are HCV-infected are also co-infected with HIV (and vice versa), yes. If you had a possible HCV exposure, you had a possible HIV exposure.
If your concerned about exposures, you should be sure to discuss this with your healthcare provider.
