Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can a man or woman who has hepatitis C still have children?

Yes, hepatitis C does not prevent a man or woman from having children.

The hepatitis C virus infection does not cause infertility in either sex--it does not affect a woman's ovarian or uterine function, or a man's sperm production or sperm characteristics.
