A: “Hepatitis C is transmitted primarily through contact with blood containing the hepatitis c virus. The risk of sexual transmission is low. If you are concerned about hepatitis c you can get tested. Testing is available at the Family Planning Association. Contact your health care provider or Family Planning for additional information about testing.”
