... after pregnancies. I now have Hep.C and want to know if this virus could have come from the Rhogam shots?
NO VERY LITTLE CHANCE the clinic or doctor etc are very careful and do not reuse needles does your husband or partner have this also. Now days it is next to impossible to get Hep C from a health care provider everything is checked and double checked by the companies. Still most cases even though you can look it up but still it is possible to get hep C from unprotected sex, that is the rare way of getting it you can also get it from sharing needles or straws snorting drugs.
The good news is that they now have medications to cure Hep C for the biggest amouth of people that have it. Check with your doctor and also ask him or her what are the chance of getting it from the shots back in the 80;s And work on getting your hep c taken care of most common is still transfer of blood from one person to another. Keep you private stuff away from the kids. such as tooth brush,etc I know when I was in the Hospital for blood transfusion it supprised me that I had to sign a waiver for Hiv or Hep C. I would worry more about treating it and get rid of it than where it has come from and Thank GOD that they now have a cure for it that has been very effective. Hope you are doing well, And take care of yourself have a great and Merry Christmas to you and your family. and many many more. Chuck1957
I think the point is when she had most of her human blood products (1981 - 1986).
In 1984 it was just starting to be called hepatitis 1a etc (before that it was non A, non B Hepatitis) and blood supplies weren't mass screened as they are now. I say definitely yes; it is possible because of when you had your shots.
