it can occur when anal sex is involved or fisting, this is why hep c is up in numbers among the gay community
vaginal sex where HIV is not present is no risk or at least so minimal ,

YES from my experience. If there a blood contact YES. I've got HCV with sexsual intercourse. My boyfriend had HCV but I didn't know. He told me after 4 month, and after 6 months I went in to a hospital with acute HCV. So, if there any little wound on your genitals Yes you can get HCV for gratis. And you should not have sex while your girlfriend has menstrual cycles
the best advice i think is this
wear a condom with any partner who you are having brief encounters with, if its a long term partner and you are having vaginal sex then i would nt worry at all, unless maybe you had or partner had opened cuts or sores

The definition of STD is significant probability of transmission during sex. The CDC does not suggest a change in sex habits for couples. Having sex with a man who has a bleeding penis would be considered high risk sex. Here are some links to help you.
