Hepatitis C: Yes. Hepatitis c should not affect your fertility. In fact with newer treatment options, you should be able to get treated and cure hepatitis c. You may have to use contraception during treatment and if you are untreated as hepatitis c has a small chance of being transmitted sexually as well.
