continued risk of transmission after acute hep c

I found out yesterday from my girlfriend of 4 months that 2 years ago she contracted Hep C. I have been looking for information on how best to minimise the risk of my becoming infected. I have also been trying to guage the likelihood of having become infected over the last 4 months.

From what I understand she suffered and recovered from acute Hep C. My question is that none of the info on the web says whether recovery from acute hepatitis means that the virus is no longer present in the body. As such I am unsure whether I may have been exposed over the last 4 months and should see my doctor.

thanks

Richard
