I am very scared I might get hepatitis C. I was smoking weed with men, who I barely know and later a friend told he is hepatitis C positive. Is it possible that he transmitted hepatitis C on me? How exactly is hepatitis C transmitted?
If you were just smoking, then you have nothing to worry about. Hepatitis C is transmitted by blood to blood contact only! Which mean that blood infected with hepatitis C must come directly in touch with your blood, and even smallest amounts of blood can transmit disease. For example, sharing equipment to inject drugs, having sexual intercourse, form mother to baby, body piercing or tattooing that is not sterile, also sharing a razor blade or toothbrush (you never know if a person has little wounds in mouth).
However, it is most likely you are not affected with hepatitis C.
