Re: Is 6 weeks enough time for a Hep C test to be considered accurate?

The average incubation time for Hep C is 45 days, according to the CDC. But it can extend out to six months. So the negative result is encouraging, but I would just repeat it at 6 months after exposure to be sure. It can certainly be repeated sooner if you develop any symptoms suggestive of hepatitis. Hopefully your exposure was minimal, and your immune nsystem strong.
