Hi,
Thanks for query,
Hepatitis C can spread through sexual contact but it doesn't happen often.
Unlike the hepatitis B virus, which has been found in semen and vaginal fluids, the hepatitis C virus doesn't seem to be in those fluids in significant amounts.
The risk of developing hepatitis C from sexual contact might increase if you have multiple sexual partners, have rough sex (having sex in such a way that may have direct contact with blood), have a sexually transmitted disease or are infected with HIV.
Jaundice,lossof appetite ,fatigue & muscle or joint ache is the symptoms of it but you should confirm it by blood checks.
Thanks.
