My partner has hepatitis C. Can I catch hepatitis C through unprotected sex with her?

I'm a 36-year-old male from the UK. I have a new partner who is 33 and was diagnosed with hepatitis C several years ago. I have two questions: 1. What are the chances of me contracting hepatitis C through unprotected sex with her? 2. My partner has been prescribed the Depo-Provera injection for contraception by her doctor. I was under the impression that Depo-Provera should not be used by people with possible liver problems, i.e. people with HCV. Is she safe to continue using Depo-Provera? Thanks.
