Can you get hep c if someone puts there finger

Patient : Can you get hep c if someone puts there finger in your anus
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. It is very unlikely that you can get hep C because of that. Hep C is transmitted by ora l, anal and vaginal sex. If you have not had any of these, then you are safe. Wait for about 1 month to be certain and be alert to any symptoms of fever with weakness. These symptoms will decide if you have hep C or not. Hope this helps. All the best.
