Unprotected anal sex and possible Hep C infection
« on: February 06, 2015, 05:16:25 pm »
I had unprotected, receptive anal sex during a phase of mine in late August. Later that night, I came down with a fever that lasted two days. I also had a Bilirubin problem with my liver for a few days, too, which might have been from using Day/NightQuil every 8 hours. One week later, I had diarrhea, which lasted two days. From that point on, till late October, I seemed perfectly fine. However, in late October, I seemed to be developing some sort of stomach issue, as I would get nausea, and my stools got lighter, and sunk. A month later, I developed insomnia. That insomnia was terrible. I literally didn't get any sleep at all some nights. Then, I got a form of it that wakes me up every night between 1-4 AM, sometimes later. I then started getting more symptoms, such as tingling and increased urination that lasted for a few days, as well as joint pain that is quite rare, thus far. Around that time I also developed a strange arm and foot odor that a friend said was similar to alcohol. Over the last four weeks, my tongue has looked white in the back of it, with barely visible bumps, and I had an occasional bitter taste in my mouth for no known reason two nights. I also have mild constipation. Can Hepatitis C cause these types of problems in only three months? This makes me worried that I might have gotten the virus. I got tested five days after that happened. But was too nervous to do a follow up test. However, I did get an HIV test that came back negative, yesterday. Could hepatitis C cause these problems? And is it possible to have hep C without jaundice?

What are the symptoms of acute Hepatitis C?
Approximately 70%–80% of people with acute Hepatitis C do not have any symptoms. Some people, however, can have mild to severe symptoms soon after being infected, including

•Fever
•Fatigue
•Loss of appetite
•Nausea
•Vomiting
•Abdominal pain
•Dark urine
•Clay-colored bowel movements
•Joint pain
•Jaundice (yellow color in the skin or eyes)


If you are concerned get tested in 6 months.

I suggest if you have concerns after doing things do not do them again then no worries. In other words do not have unprotected sex then you will have no worries.
