Now that the dissents that don't even believe in HIV have answered you.

The 1 in 500 figure comes from a study done in Africa a few years ago. You can learn more by going to the Expert section, choosing Safe Sex and Prevention. In the search bar type in Africa Study or 500 or odds of transmission. It will bring up posts related to that topic.

If you are worried you should go get tested. Don't read too much into these statistics. Doctors are saying that female to male transmision is rare, so that should be some confort for you. Get a test at 3 months, and if you're not there yet and you need some peace of mind you can take a test at 1 or 2 months, a negative test at this time is a good indicator you are just fine.
Good luck.
