spread by semen

Hello, I'm afraid I have contracted HCV (not sure, I'm planning to be tested next week).In case I caught it, do you think it can be spread by semen from a nocturnal emission? You know, it gets spread over the pyjama and bed cloths and dries there.You touch many things then before you wash yourself.I'm going crazy from fear of spreading it and e.g. my room-mate contracting it.

Maybe you would help me if you were more specific - my post is a result of fear of spreading the disease.If the virus can be present in semen,I wondered how likely it can be to spread it from "contaminated" things - virus can persist for certain time outside the body - I think that people often have some small bruises etc and if the virus persists outside, the probability rises. I can't estimate the possible load in the semen or the infectiousness. That's why I asked for your experience or view on something of this kind.

well, I know the question was maybe somewhat weird, but I am quite anxious when it comes down to these things... because if there is (though little) probability of transmission via sexual intercourse, I am afraid this might also happen.

The possible exposition happened 7 weeks ago. Now I consider, whether is it better to wait for several more days to be tested (to raise the probability of getting the correct result of anti-HCV test) or whether get it done as soon as possible. It shouldn't make that big difference, should it?
