Hello,

Unfortunately, I cannot respond to your specific questions with such limited information. I strongly suggest you talk to your doctor to gain a better understanding of your hepatitis C diagnosis, disease stage and therapeutic options. I agree this issue must be resolved prior to your starting a family. By way of background information, I listed two links below that provide basic information about hepatitis C and its diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options. You can also access additional information by using the archives' "search" function. Just type in hepatitis C into the "Search The Body.com" box and then click "Go."

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
