It can take several months to develop anibodies; what was your exposure? Are you aware that it requires blood-to-blood contact to be infected with this disease? It's unlikely to contract from either casual or sexual contact.

I would check with your doctor.  If you have been exposed and they catch it in the acuate phase, they have an excellent chance of getting rid of it then before it becomes chronic.

You should test it after two month from exposure and if you do not have antibodies than check it after six months again and that's all

sexual exposer is a very inefficient way to catch Hep C.  I do not think you have much to worry about.
