In brief: Pretty high

We don't know exactly, but we do have studies that follow women at a young age to see the risk.
Some studies, following women who claim to have had sex for the first time, and with minimal partners, and data shows that 40% will test positive in 2 years after first having sex. That's a pretty high acquisition risk! we also know that 80% of women will test positive by age 50! protect yourself!
