There have been cases of HIV-negative men contracting the virus by having sex.
It really depends on the type of sex you have as well as the network of men whom you have sex with.
Once you have had hepatitis A or B, you cannot be infected with it again, but you can get hepatitis C any number of times, even after successful treatment.
HIV-positive men are particularly susceptible to getting hepatitis C during sex.
But if you think that you are at risk for contracting hepatitis C, do not hesitate to get tested. At the moment doctor's offices are the only places where hiv-negative men can get tested for hepatitis C.
Get tested if a partner has told you he has hepatitis C or if you think you have symptoms of hepatitis C. It is a virus that weakens your immune system, eventually making your body incapable of combating infections effectively.
Even if you take HIV medication, you can still get this STI.
This does not mean that HIV-negative men are not at risk.
Threesomes, group sex and orgies provide the perfect conditions for hepatitis C to spread rapidly.
