Hepatitis while in period

Hi all, I am dating a Hep C positive woman and we inadvertently had unprotected sex on the 1st day of her period. After intercourse, we were both covered in blood. What are the risks of contraction following this scenario.
Thanks.

HCV is present in menstrual blood. You should get tested.

Interesting question that hasn't been raised recently.  If blood to blood, could happen.  Get tested.   Following is a link to an older discussion.

Whenever there is blood involved  and one partner has HCV then there is risk and a simple HCV test should be done..

If hep C is transmitted during sex, it is likely to be through blood-to-blood contact. This emphasises the need for safe sex practices where there is a risk of blood-to-blood contact, e.g. sex when you have cuts or lesions on or close to the genitals, during anal sex (because the anus lining is easily broken), during menstruation, and during sexual practices that may involve bleeding or broken skin.

There is no absolute yes or no answer. Yes it's possible, but it would still require him to have an open cut on his penis at the time, so it's not very probable. My husband and I had sex when menstrual blood was present a number of times (back when I was infected but did not yet know it) and he never became infected, but he never had cuts or sores on his penis.

Omg....some people are allergic to condums and latex and the pills for safety don't work worth crap and I was raped thank u very much 6 mths b4 I got pregnant with my son and I didnt know I had hep c...I was also a addict whom used needles with better half (3 yrs b4) and he isn't affected the happiest day of our life was also the most miserable ...March 14th 2011 I have birth to my second child and while resting the doctor came in and informed me that I was healthy as was my child But that I had hep C..!!!! It was a cloudy day in that rm I had no idea as a person in mms life at time of assault burned all my medical crap And I was homeless...the doctors never informed me as no way to contact and plus I had been raped 3x b4 and never had anything like this happen where I got affected....so instead of judging those who don't do sex the way u do and remember it can happen to anyone !!!!
