hepatitis c transmission is rare...that is true.
and initially, the CDC did state that condom use was not necessary.
However, that has been changed as to the last time I read the recommendation by the CDC....
the CDC does now recommend condom use.
so..I read the recommendation again...and above, I'm talking about sexual transmission of hepatitis c
the verbage the CDC is now using says condoms may not be necessary in heterosexual partners.
even though the trasmission is low I do recommend the use of condoms as a professional recommendation.
Thank you for your answer Dr. Pfeiffer.
It appears that the CDC isn't taking a definite stand. I suppose more research is necessary before they could.
