In brief: No
Hepatitis c is very common, but is thought to be difficult to spread through sex.
It is easily spread through blood however, and so any open wounds would be concerning. My initial thoughts are if he is at high risk for hepatitis c, then i would be more concerned to know his test results for sexually transmitted diseases/hiv.
