Hello everyone I am just curious if you can get rid of Hep c 2B? My friend has it and he was upfront and told me about it and he would like to have sexual intercourse with me without a condom and have a child with me as well but I dont want to catch anything and I damn sure do not want to pass anything onto my child is that even possible? or is it blood to blood?
Even though it is a blood to blood transmission disease it is possible to transmit sexually. Even if it a very small % it is still possible.
Tell your friend if he was a true friend he would treat his disease then ask you to have sex. Until then use a condom!
If this was your husband then it would be a different story but not worth the risk for a "friend".
PS, tell him being a 2B is easier to treat and could be cured in 6 months with treatment.
If I were single I wouldn't have sexual relations with anyone without a condom. While HCV is not sexually transmitted often, it certainly can be. The CDC does not recommend comdoms in long term monogamous relationships, but they do for everyone else. The father cannot pass the disease to an unborn child, but if the mother has it, she will transmit it 5% of the time to her fetus. And yes, genotype 2b's clear the virus up to 85% of the time. Do NOT, I repeat NOT, have a child with someone who is on treatment. Two methods of birth control must be used for people on ribavirin and for six months after treatment ends. Ribavirin is tetragenic and will harm your unborn child.
i accidently fell prego 4 1/2 yrs ago and my lil gal is ok,no hepc c at all but i would totally not have planned the pregnancy cos all i did was worry worry worry the whole time i was prego and until she was 18 months old to get her fial blood test.i gave birth naturally and i expressed my milk instead of breast feeding cos i was paranoid from cracked nipples.i was on levelen ed birth control too but id forget to take em and her father had hep c too the same type,hep c dont live in sperm,but yeah blood can be present in sex so that is why it can b caught but real rare.
totally use con doms with your m8 just incase,he should get treated asap the earlier the better so i hear.
Men conceive children without passing hcv on to them. There are many fathers here on the forum who have been married for many years and have children, without having infected their spouses nor their children.
Also doctors don't recommend to use condoms, if one is in a monogamous relationship.
So if you and your boyfriend are planning to have children, I personally don't see anything wrong with it. As long as you are also ready to have children.
I would advise you boyfriend to look into treatment. Being genotype 2, he would 'only' have to treat for 24 weeks.
As JennyPenny explained, when doing treatment he must in NO way conceive a child and up until 6 months after treatment. And preferably longer. The treatment drugs would seriously damage the child, mentally and physically.
