can hep c spread by bleeding during sex?

Question

I had sex with someone while drunk and I tested positive for hepatitis C , I thought I was done with my period but when I used the bathroom after I seen some blood? Is there a chance I passed it to him because it was unprotected? I'll tell him asap if so.!

Answer

Hello Yes, Hepatitis C can be passed during sex and the risk would likely be higher if you were menstruating. You should advise your sex partner of the exposure. Take care Dr W
