I am wondering if my wife is at risk of getting my Hep C. We have been married for 2 years & have 1 daughter & another due in November. When she was pregnant with our first daughter, she was tested for Hep C just to be safe & it came back negative. With this pregnancy, she wanted to be tested again to be safe & the test is still negative (they did a more accurate test the 2nd time & it showed no trace of the virus). Her doctor said that usually it is not transmitted sexually but is possible. He said he heard that the few cases it was transmitted sexually was when a person had a very high viral load. According to what I've read, my 9 million viral load is considered high. I am wondering if any of you know any more about this because we have come to realize that most doctors really do not seem to know much about this disease. It seems that people who have it know more than the doctors usually.
