Hello my last question about hvc help!

Hello I just need help knowing if I’m in the clear and move on with my life.. I took a hvc antibody at 9 weekend which came back negative also to the hvc rna pcr QUALITATIVE the following week 10 weeks post exposure I was reading online that theirs also a Quant? If my RNA PCR QUAL came back undetected “Negative” am I in the clear? Or would I also have to take a Quan Test ? This is 10 weeks post exposure I know that this test is definitive I just want to make sure with the antibody negative and the Qual not detected I don’t need any further testing ? Thank you guys so much

This test would be definitive after a couple of weeks and is definitive. You do not have hep c. No additional testing is needed.

Congrats on being free of hepatitis c.
