What's the percentage of infection of HIV from male to female?


if they have had unprotected sex for about 8 months?

"Generally women are at a greater risk of heterosexual transmission of HIV. Biologically women are twice more likely to become infected with HIV through unprotected heterosexual intercourse than men".

I guess it all depends on whether the guy is having sex with anyone else, and the previous partners he had. Then I guess you should factor in all of their partners... Also any IV drug use...

Testing is the only sure way to know.

FROM male TO female, infection rates are very high, about 80%, it's how most women with HIV got it. From female to male is pretty low about 12%.

Transmission rate of HIV from male to female is very high, as kay... said. There is risk of transmission from female to male, but it is lower.
