Hepatitis C and Sex
« on: March 16, 2016, 08:53:23 pm »
Okay, now that I have your attention, what I really need are HEP Stories. (Let's face it, if I had put HEP Story in the subject line, would you have clicked on it?)

Everyone has a story, and you don't need to be a good writer to tell it. We'll help with the story. Submit stories to: https://www.hepmag.com/category/hep-stories

Thanks

Ha Ha - Well you snagged me. I plan to post my story after I get 12 wk EOT results. Hopefully, I will have a happy story to tell. Currently my brain is still a bit to fogged to do so.

There is another story in your title which should be discussed and that is the subject of the effects and risks of the drugs (especially Ribavirin) concerning the reproduction system, pregnancy, etc.

To all those who have shared their stories, I say Thank You, as I always gain a little more insight from every story.

If I don't get a HEP Story soon, I may have to resort to nude photos...Don't worry - they'd be of my dog who looks much better without clothes than I do.

Hi,
I am also doing that, but since sex sells in advertising, I thought I'd try that. ;)
