In brief: No.

Jaundice occurs in hepatitis C infection only when it has resulted in severe liver disease, known as cirrhosis.
This usually occurs after 20-40 years of infection. If you have hep C, see your doctor for treatment before this develops. New treatments are effective and have very few side effects.
