Hepatitis C is not spread through breast milk, but, if your nipples are cracked and bleeding you should not continue breastfeeding your baby until they have healed. Once healed, you can continue breastfeeding.
Don’t donate blood
If you have hepatitis C you cannot donate blood, sperm or organs for uninfected people. Though the U.S. does screen the blood supply, you still shouldn’t donate.
Seek drug treatment
If you are injecting street drugs, try to get into a treatment facility. If you continue to inject drugs, don’t share needles or equipment with anyone.
