IS THIS TRUE???
Mar 9, 2002

Hi Dr. Henry, please clearfied the following statement made by yourself about: (is it really that low of risk from female to male transmission?)

"The risk for transmission from an infected woman to a man is less than 1 per intercourse."-Posted on feb. 27/02

Response from Dr. Henry

The general risk for HIV transmission from an infected woman to a man is less than 1 % per intercourse (infection would occur less than 1 out of a hundred exposures). If the woman had advanced AIDS, if there were genital ulcers, if the man wasn't circumcised that might increase the risk to around 1%. KH
