-Am i at risk for HEP B and HEP C? I heard these two strains can be transmitted sexually. If so, when would be a good testing time frame for them?
-Is it true that being infected with HEP C and HIV can delay the HIV antibodies being developed in your system? Will this mean that my 3 month HIV test may not be accurate because of a possible co-infection?
Since your encounter was protected, I dont see how you will catch those 2 viruses, especially Hep C which is not really regarded as an STD, [ removed
], anal sex carries a risk for Hep C, but other forms of unprotected sex carry a very low/low risk.
CDC.gov says there is no evidence oral carries a risk for Hep C.
Hep B is an STD. But again you had a protected encounter.
], testing for Hep C antibodies should not interfere with your HIV results.
I am myself awaiting my Hep B/C results, my encounter was protected vaginal for 2 minutes, unprotected insertive oral. I am really scared about the unprotected oral part, anyways, I will know soon.
There is always hope.
