Do you mean continuous exposure for a period of ten years or one exposure ten years ago?

If you have waited between 3 and 6 months since your last exposure, a neg antibody test is reliable.

I only been exposed once by a poke of a contaminated tattoo gun. That was when I was in 7th grade. I am now 25 and last got tested when I was around 21.

Worry about something remotely possible, like getting hit  by a bus or the sun rising in the west.

You don't have hep c.
