Asked by on

My just found out that my ex boyfriend cheated on me and had unprotected sex 4 or 5 times with this girl that has hep C. They may have had anal sex but I dont know for sure. At the time he and I were also having unprotected sex and we did have anal sex several times. What are the chances that he contracted hep C and passed it on to me? I am getting tested next week but I am just wondering what the odds are.

The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is responsible for causing a contagious liver disease known as hepatitis C. The disease can be spread from person to person, and it was found that in a 2013 study that 1 in every 190,000 instances of heterosexual sexual contact resulted in the transmission of HCV among participants who were in monogamous sexual relationships. Factors that may increase the likelihood of transmitting HCV through sexual contact include having multiple sexual partners, engaging in rough sexual activity, not using barrier protection such as condoms or dental dams, not using barrier protection correctly, and having a sexually transmitted infection or HIV.

If you think you’ve been exposed to Hepatitis C, it’s important to get tested right away!
