Hi, my name is Rinn and i think i might have been exposed to hep c. I had contact with a guy i know and i just heard from someone that he is positive. i am going in for bloodwork this week and im scared to death. from reading these posts i now know that there is a cure. the reason i'm scared is because i have a wonderful boyfriend who is now at risk. im completely crushed and scared to death because if i am positive that means i have to explain this to my boyfriend. i really need to talk to someone...so please comment or talk to me on aim. retrorinn i need some support...bad. the man who is suposedly positive drugged me and from what i remember we had oral contact...there's less risk for that right?

All I can tell you is that my uncle was positive all the time he was married to his second wife-they were married for about thirty years and had two kids together-and she's negative. My two cousins, my little brother, and I all grew up with positive parents (their dad, both of my parents) who didn't know they had it and we're all negative.

Hep C. isn't very easily transmitted. The government's own health website lists sexual partners of Hep C. positive people at low risk for contracting the disease. If all you had was "oral contact" with no open wounds involved, you're at extremely low risk. Wouldn't hurt to be tested any way, but I think you probably have reason to be optimistic.

Hey, I just stumbled across this community after searching the interests for Hep C. My boyfriend was diagnosed with it about a week ago and so now I'm pretty scared that I have it too. I was just curious to know if you had ever found out if you had it or not. I promise I'm not some creep, lol. I was just wondering because like I said I am afraid I've contracted it from my bf...
