Question about passing Hepatitis C?

My SO has Hepatitis C, which I was aware of when we got together, and we have had unprotected sex on a few occasions. How likely is it for him to pass it to me that way? Is it worth me getting blood work done to check at this point? How long does it take to show up in your blood if you do get it?

  • Can only be spread form blood to blood contact.

    Blood-to-blood contact during sexual activity between an infected and uninfected partner. (In this context, menstrual blood should be treated as any other kind of blood.) The risk of transmission during sex is not precisely known but is thought to be quite low. The risk of transmission is less than 3% for partners of hepatitis C infected persons involved in a monogamous relationship.
