Back in May I had a brief period of protected vaginal intercourse with a female. I had been drinking a bit that night and could not stay motivated so the intercouse did not last very long. I wore a condom, but I am concerned because I did not know this female very well. I had a blood test about three weeks after the encounter and then had an orasure test at about 3.5 months with both coming out negative. How risky was this encounter and should I be tested again at six months? Thanks

Using a condom for vaginal sex puts you at very low-risk for infection (as long as the condom was latex, and used throughout intercourse). But that is almost irrelevant at this point; your 3.5 month antibody test indicates that you are HIV negative.
