Take this list of questions with you when you see your doctor. It will help you get the information you need to manage your hepatitis C. You might want a family member or friend to go with you to take notes.
The hepatitis C virus usually spreads through blood. The most common way that people get it is from injecting drugs -- especially when they share needles or syringes. But it's possible to get the disease through sex.
It's more likely to happen if you or your partner have HIV or another sexually transmitted disease, have rough sex, or have more than one sex partner.
