Engaging in rough sex and having a sexually transmitted disease can both increase your risk of contracting HCV.
Less commonly, sharing personal items such as a toothbrush or razor can spread the infection since these utensils may come into contact with infected blood. Living with a person puts you at risk but only if you come into contact with their blood.
Being tested is entirely up to your partner, but it’s highly recommended.
Unless you’ve shared needles or other instruments, the likelihood that you’ve shared blood is low.
It’s important to remember that treatments come with side effects.
These side effects may leave you exhausted or sick. Be honest with your partner about your energy levels and why they may fluctuate.
Also, as the infection progresses, the damage to your liver may cause serious complications. It’s important to pace yourself and try not to exert all your energy at once.
Still, if your partner has HCV, catching it early will be beneficial.
Early treatment is one of the best ways to slow and possibly prevent complications from HCV.
