Hello , i m french . Six weeks ago , i had a sexual relation wih a girl hcv + ( include sodomy ) . Two weeks later this exposure ,  i experimented symptoms like arthralgia , cold hands , frequent urination . I watched on internet and these symptoms looks like cryoglobuleminia .

Long term consequence of being infected.

The symptoms you describe are not associated with cryoglobulinemia especially frequent urination.

“Symptoms usually come and go, and may include:

Skin lesions. Most people with cryoglobulinemia develop purplish skin lesions on their legs. In some cases, leg ulcers also occur.

Joint pain. Symptoms resembling rheumatoid arthritis are common in cryoglobulinemia.
Peripheral neuropathy. Cryoglobulinemia can damage the nerves at the tips of your fingers and toes, causing numbness and other problems.”

Most people initially infected with hep c have no symptoms and are completely unaware they are infected.

“Every chronic hepatitis C infection starts with an acute phase. Acute hepatitis C usually goes undiagnosed because it rarely causes symptoms. When signs and symptoms are present, they may include jaundice, along with fatigue, nausea, fever and muscle aches. Acute symptoms appear one to three months after exposure to the virus and last two weeks to three months.”

If concerned about contracting hep c wait 12 weeks after this possible exposure and have the hepatitis C antibody test. While there is some risk with the situation you have described hep c is relatively difficult to transmit sexually.

Causes of frequent urination in men

“One of the more common causes of urinary frequency is a urinary tract infection (bladder or prostate). Frequent urination can be caused by prolapse of the bladder (dropped bladder). Sometimes urinary frequency can be caused by stones in the urinary tract. ... Diabetes mellitus can cause frequent urination.”

Speak with your doctor about your symptoms.
