  • Receiving a blood transfusion from blood or blood products that were not adequately screened.

If hepatitis c is transmitted through blood than how can you catch it through sex. What I have read about hep c is you cannot get it through sex.
Hepatitis C is spread through contact with an infected person's blood. Sex isn't usually bloody, although blood may be present because of genital sores, rough sex, or cuts. So, transmission during sex is possible but rare.
So you can’t catch it by having sex
Sperm can have blood droplets
