  1. Absolutely, although it is much mpre difficult to get than hepatitis B. C is blood transmited. Use of condomns is a great way to prevent transmission.

  2. Although HCV is not a sexually transmitted disease (STD), transmission can occur during unprotected sexual contact if the sexual activity involves blood-to-blood contact. The sexual spread of HCV is due to blood-blood contact rather than the presence of the virus in vaginal fluid or semen.(Wikipedia)
    Hepatitis C infection is caused by hepatitis C virus (HCV). Persons who may be at risk for hepatitis C are those who:
    # Have or have had sex with multiple partners
    # Have or have had sex with a person who has hepatitis C
    # Share personal items, such as toothbrushes and razors, with someone who has hepatitis C (MedlinePlus).
    Please see the web pages for more details on Hepatitis C.
