hep c transmission through sex in stable relationship
I had hep c for roughly 15 yrs. I had a number of long term sexual relationships with 5 women in that time. We had sex frequently as I was in my teens and twenties without condoms. I told all of these women that I had it and not to worry about it. Many people thought I was playing roulette with other people's health. Well when I was in treatment for hep c, I telephoned each of them and asked them to please get tested. I told them they best let their doc know their ex long term sex partner had chronic hep c. They all got tested. All negative
I myself have had sex many times since then with a girl I know is hep c positive and I have no fear about catching it again through sex. I know the advice is not to partake during periods but in my case that didnt make any difference either. Am I really playing roulette??
Very admirable of u calling the chicks. Our health dept here in VA told my fiancée, it IS an STD. Course he was disturbed, even tho I told him I was infected prior to intimacy. I had planned on being alone forever, as not to infect anyone. My liver doc sez NO! One percent chance of infecting. Stay away from a chick on the period and rough anal sex unless u do wear the raincoat. All other times-"get sum," with your regular steady hep c free partner and don't worry
