Dunno really who to ask??

I've had five hep tests since an unprotected vaginal sex exposure last one being 28 weeks after exposure. They where antibody test. All negative. The incident was in June of 2012, and I had a normal CBC and liver function tests in September. Should I still be scared that I have hep c after a 6 month negative test? I also tested for hiv all the times as well and tested negative for hiv at 43 weeks again. Everyone told me I'm hiv negative so I gotta figure out what's goin on. Thanks for your input.

It is very, very difficult to get Hep C from unprotected vaginal sex.  Some hepatologists think it is impossible.  Most (if not all) don't even think that long-term monogamous partners should use condoms.

If everything you've said in this post is true, I would be astonished if you had Hep-C.

HIV on the other hand, does transmit through heterosexual, unprotected intercourse.  That's a different story.  But the tests for that are very good now, so you don't likely have that either.

Thank you very much for your response. :) I posted in the hiv forum already and they said there is no way I have hiv with a negative antibody test at 42 weeks after exposure, so I suppose I'm ok. The girl I mistakingly slept with said she got an hiv test as well and was negative. So I'm just trying to rule stuff out. Thanks again for your time.

EKI1 stated it as it is.  Move on.... be at peace with these issues.  U truly never want to go there.  Life changes forever... if there is still a life.
