See my response below you are not at risk. Hepatitis C is a blood borne virus. This means blood infected with hepatitis c must enter the blood stream of an uninfected person. Most common method of transmission would be sharing of IV drug needles.

If you have concerns wait 12 weeks and have the hepatitis c antibody test. But I would be very surprised if your result was anything other than negative.
As you already tested negative at more than 12 weeks post exposure YOU DO NOT HAVE HEPATITIS C.

I did 2 test hcv ab
At 92 and 100 day after exposure
You mean after other 12 weeks ( 6 month ) ?
12 weeks after a potential exposure. AKA  84 days after after a potential exposer



Very likely you did not need to test as you were likely never at risk

Get counseling for anxiety the medical condition you apparently DO  have

Ok I just read your post in the HIV forum about your exposure.

You are not at risk for hepatitis c from what you described

Being infected with hepatitis c does not interfere with detection of HIV. Having HIV with proms of reduced immune response can interfere with the ability to detect new hepatitis c infection.

The normal testing window for hep c antibodies is generally 12 weeks after a risky exposure. A risk for hepatitis c is a situation where hepatitis c infected blood could have entered the blood stream of an uninfected person such as sharing IV drug needles engaging in rough sexual practices where there is a risk of bleeding like BDSM or blood sports. Other ways to contract Hep c is a blood transfusion prior to 1990 when testing for hep c antibodies were approved and the blood supply secured.

Generally average sexual practices are considered low risk but people who have multiple sexual partners are at an increased risk of transmission. With monogamous couples there  are many examples where one partner has hep c while the other does not demonstrating the relatively low risk of sexual transmission in these cases.

Although you didn’t say your exposure risk if you did not have a rush of hep c infected blood entering your blood stream you were not at any risk.

As I already said the testing window is 12 weeks for hep c antibodies. For a test taken after 12 weeks and that test is negative you are not infected with hep c
