Customer Question
My boyfriend was treated...

My boyfriend was treated for a-symptomatic hepatitis C and given the all clear. That was 18 months ago. Today my GYN did a scraping of a sore that I have at the left side of my vaginal opening. He is treating it as genital herpes, but having blood drawn for HIV I and HIV II. Could they be related?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Perfect.....no flu, no colds, nothing out of the ordinary.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

None that I can think of. I have had a herpes cold sore occasionally, usually when I am under stress, but it's been a while.

That is not likely to be related to Hep C as it does not present with vaginal sores however it is better to get yourself tested for Hep C as the virus can live in your body without symptoms. So both the partners should be tested as hep c is an STD.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
