    is it illegal not to tell someone you have hep c and then they get it?
    An_266282 posted:
    I have had hep c before and had to do antivirals and interferuon for a year to get it so I couldn't pass it on. It was horrible. well this man knew all this and still had sex with me and did drugs never telling me he had it. now I have it again. my biggest concern is that he will continue doing this and passing it on. Oh and by the way; he does not care at all. He says he has his own problems to deal with.

    It is not illegal and there are awareness groups everywhere. If I knew a man like that spreading this deadly virus I would not hesitate to report him, however the past 13 yrs I have done research, there is no proof to get hep c from sex. This is a blood bone disease in which there are cures for it. I no longer have Hep c over a year. Get back on today's cure as soon as possible.
