What is the per episode risk of hep b for intercourse?

I have two questions:
What is the per episode risk of hep b for unprotected vaginal intercourse (from the female to the male)?

I had a hep b shot but I think I only had one in the series. But I do remember a doctor telling me, 8 years later, that I tested immune due to vaccination. Is this possible?

I read somewhere that developing antibodies from one shot is of the same quality and will last as long as if you had all 3. In other words, immunity from one shot will last as long as from 3. Any input?

You should contact a liver specialist to see your results and confirm immunity.
