In brief: No

Hcv is not easily transmitted sexually, and when it is, it's not through oral sex.
We're seeing some sexual transmission among gay men, usually as a result of rough receptive anal sex where there may be abrasions and blood contact. It's uncommon among heterosexuals, and i've never heard of oral transmission.

In brief: Maybe

It is theoretically possible for transmission to occur, particularly if there are open sores.
I would discuss specifics with your physician(s) about transmission.
