Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that causes liver inflammation, sometimes leading to serious liver damage. The hepatitis C virus spreads through contaminated blood.

The virus is transmitted by sharing drugs and needles, having sex, especially if you have an STD, an HIV infection, several partners, or have rough sex,being stuck by infected needles and a mother can pass it on to her child.
