    Hep C blood Test twice indeterminate

    Am a frequent blood donor, past 4 years am donating blood in different location.
    Suddenly when i donated on jan 2014 i called for submitting my blood specimen for rechecking since by hep c test was indeterminate. i gave my blood sample again i got the result again my PCR result also Indeterminate.

    I dont have any unwanted sex relationship. i dono how i can have hep c symptoms on my blood. Am a occasional drinker. But i will smoke regularly.. When i surfed the net i got that hep c only caused due to blood to blood contact. Am confused alot.

    any one can help me

    There are lots of easier ways to get HCV than through sex. Its hard to pass via sex unless you both have open sores or rashes that are rubbing together.

    Nail salons are easy places to get it.
    Drug usage of the worst kind, using needles behind others.
    And infected persons tooth brush his/her gums bled onto, his/her nail clippers, razor, and more.

    You may just have the anti-bodies fighting it off. They can hold off full blown HCV virus for a long time in some cases.

    If so you are lucky enough to catch and treat it before its has your liver in a bad state.

    Some people don't know they have it until their skin and eyes are jaundice yellow, and their liver has advanced cirrhosis.

    To me, my guess is "Indeterminate" means they have detected the antibodies.

    Good Luck
