My boyfriend of the past 5 years just found out that he is Hepatitis C positive. He has been, unfortunately, an alcoholic for many, many years. He has no idea about how he could have caught it. We are both pretty non-informed about what it is. I've been doing some research on the internet and have become really freaked out that I may have it. How possible is it to transmit? I heard that through sex or through blood is the way. Well, we've had unprotected sex....that's it. I put a call into my doctor asking if I should get tested. She hasn't returned my call yet and I am completely a nervous wreck. I recently had weight loss surgery and am trying to better my life. A hep C diagnosis would just not make my day!
