Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

Hepatitis C is viral and is spread via the blood stream but having unprotected sex with a HCV+ man also exposes you to this risk. Oral sex with an HVC+ man also exposes a person due to the risk of blood being present. Rough sex increases your risk.

Thank you for writing!
