how is it contracted?

Hello, i just want some clarifications plz. I already know that hepatits c is contracted by sharing syrings or blood to blood transmission. But could it be contracted by sexual activities such as oral sex(which involves body fluids)? My next question is what are the symptoms of hepatits c?

no risk of Hep C from oral sex but there are other diseases transmitted that way.

There arent any symptons until you get really sick.  Ive been carrying it 20 years and have never suffered any symptons....it's the "silent killer"
