About a year and a half ago, I may have come in contact with hepatitis C. Here's the story. I was drinking with a couple of friends of mine. One of my friends was playing with a set of jumper cables and he cut my thumb pretty good. My other friend had recently gotten a tattoo with a very small scab. Somehow we got the idea that we should do a blood brothers thing. He picked his scab and i rubbed my thumb on it. Recently, he learned that a girl he was dating around that time is positive for hepatitis c and was positive while they were dating. I'm certain they had sex, although I'm unsure if they used protection or not. How great of a risk is there that I could have contracted hepatitis c?
