I am scared of after clearing hep c ,I might get it back sexually as my boyfriend also got it how easy is it get hep .c sexually
First and foremost, "Contact your doctor" or nurse Practioner NOW... especially if you are staring HARVONI. They will have the " up to date information" you are looking for and guide you. In the meantime remember... HepC is transmitted through exposure to blood not body fluids so... no Sharing of razors, toothbrushes, nail clippers, needles and I personally with abstaine from sexual activity until you speak with a professional! Good luck and remember to drink more than half your body weight in fluids, water preferred while on Harvoni.
My wife and I had unprotected sex for years while I had Hep C and later had protected sex when detected.
It's transmitted thru blood and not sex- she gets tested yearly & has always been negative after 20 plus years.
No risk is using protection and I think no risk period- rumor has it is transmited thru sex
It's blood transmission only in my experience
I got hep c from blood given to me while in hospital in 87,I married my husband in 91. We shared everything.Never had protected sex,but had lots!I found out 15 years ago I had hep c and nothing changed.He has been tested and he is hep c neg. My friends all knew I had it and the drank, smoked and ate off same fork as me. Nobody got sick. No worries,
