I had sex about 5 1/2 years ago with a guy who I found out later may have hepatitis c. We only dated a short while and we slept together about 5 times. How likely is it that I have it? I have no other risk factors.
did you have any kind of rough sex? anal, biting, etc. where blood could have been involved? if not then you have very little chance of getting HCV. do yourself a favor get tested, worrying is no way to live life! best of luck
For peace of mind get tested.....I was married to my ex for over 20 years he aint got it...My Partner who I met online has gone thru tx and not cleared I got SVR and have no worrys about getting reinfected thru sex....
OFF TOPIC...Rocker I have been trying to contact you for months please email me...Chrissyx
There is that slim possibility....but its so very rare that you should actually worry more about driving your car than you should getting Hepc without a blood exchange....I have been married 26 years and wasn't dianosed until many years into our marriage. and after having two boys - my wife was tested of course, but she has always been negative. Good luck to you
Yes, i definitely want you to be tested but ONLY to put your mind at ease. If you were to test pos from this, it would make medical history. get an antibody test, call request a test at 1888-732-2348 if you need a place to be tested and put this behind you.
I was married for 21 years and had 5 children with my wife when I was diagnosed with HCV. I acquired the virus before I was married. My wife and children are all HCV negative. It is EXTREMELY unlikely that you have hep c, but a test will give you the peace of mind you need!
