:( I recently found out my boyfriend I've had for the pass 3yrs has Hep C, he did not inform me, he knew he had it. I found a letter he had received from the Board of Health stating he has tested positive for Hep C. I freaked out, I have not been tested yet. He then reveals his past drug abuse prior to meeting me. (Heroin) I am devastated, confused, etc. If I have contacted Hep C from him, can he get in trouble for infecting me, putting my life at risk, instead of informing me of his status. He said he failed to inform me because he figured I wouldn't want to be bothered with someone who had a past such as himself, he is probably right but still... What a ****r! He is 27 and I am 28. Yes we are stil fairly young... I plan to get tested this week... worst case scenario... Can I and should I press charges ?
