HCV is blood to blood, sex is not an efficient way of spreading HCV. You have posted on this before. If you are still worried, get tested again.

Hello Hep C is not transmitted through sex, it is through blood to blood transmission.
If the tests were negative you are doing great
Good luck

Hep C is only passed through blood not semen, if the sex was normal and not anal or rough then you can X Hep C off the list, as for Hep A&B im not sure.
