Hep A  is transmitted from food and feces.

Hep B is a classic Std and is easily transmitted through sex.

Hep C is NOT a Std and is VERY rarely transmitted through sex.  When sexual

transmission of Hep C does happen, it is almost always from male to female.

there is an effective vacine for hep a and b.  Unfortunately, there is not a vaccine for

hep c, and may not ever be a hep c vaccine.

Hep A is the least.  You can get a vaccination for both Hep A and Hep B.

Hep C is a blood-borne virus.  It is spread by blood-to-blood contact.   It can be transmitted if both partners committing a sex act have open wounds on the part of the body being used or is menstruating.

anal penetration with the penis or fist is enough to cause hep c transmission and does so frequently among gays especially in group sex and also especially where HIV is present, what amazes me is the number of HIV men who present with hcv as a recent infection it shows the lack of inhibition and safe sex practices.

Yes we are not an STD forum and HepC is not an STD anyway, we dont have the knowledge available to share with you because it's not our disease.

Everyone sorry to bring this subject here:

You can not get hepA,B, or C from RECIEVING unprotected oral sex (recieving fellacito,cunninling, and analings)

You are at risk for Hep A when you GIVE analings.
You are especially at risk for hep B and C if there is blood present, and you have an open cut.

(folks  --thanks again).

Hmmm confusing ive read on websites thast you can catch hep from unprotected oral?
Blank

They are assuming you have either bleeding gums/or sores or some mouth lesion and that you are comming in contact with blood by oral sex.

My statements above assume NO mouth and genital lesions.

According to the HCV Advocate:

"There are no known cases of HCV being given through oral sex on a man (fellatio) or a woman (cunnilingus).  It is possible that the virus could be given this way, though, if a person has mouth sores, bleeding gums, or a throat infection."

Thank you Vik97 my point exactly.

ASSUMING NO LESIONS ON MOUTH OR GENITALS:

You can not get hepA,B, or C from RECIEVING unprotected oral sex (recieving fellacito,cunninling, and analings)
You are at risk for Hep A when you GIVE analings.
You are especially at risk for hep B and C if there is blood present, and you have an open cut.

incorrect its mostly transmitted male to male, and especialy when HIV is concerned it is now a real problem and growing among the gay community
