Your prior infections will not affect the current test results.

HCV is transmitted primarily through large or repeated percutaneous (i.e., passage through the skin) exposures to infectious blood.

Though Hep C can be transmitted via sexual intercourse with a infected person, the transmission rates are lower compared to other modes of infection (IV Drug use, Needle stick injuries, etc).
