Hello and welcome to the forum! 

NO! You don't have Hep C anymore, you're not going to infect anyone. We will always be antibody positive, that never changes. It just means you had the infection at one time. It's the same test they use at blood banks and by insurance companies. Anyone that had HCV, has to have the RNA viral load test performed if reinfection or relapse is ever questioned. So, don't worry about it. Congratulations on your SVR!

Hello there I am a 27 year old female. At 19 I found out I had contracted Hep C from my mom. I did pegasus treatment and since then have tested negative for a viral load. However I still test positive for the antibody. Can I still transmit the disease to others? I am concerned that my 9 month old daughter and my husband of 6 years may have become infected. This fear is eating me alive. Would if I have harmed them? Does anyone have experience with this. PS my husband is aware of my condition.
