Brief Answer:
You should test for HEP C as well.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have been through your question.

You should know that HEP C is spread through contact with infected blood which may be in genital sores or menstruation.
So, based on this I suggest you to test for HEP C (anti HCV) in order to exclude a possible infection.

I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.
