Have no idea why stretch marks are pertinent to the conversation.

You put yourself at risk. Get a test.

Hmmm... a person that has unprotected sex for money in a country known for it's sex workers, and is carrying Chlamydia.

I'd say the odds are very good that she is HIV+.

Your hope lies in the fact that it is very difficult to get HIV from vaginal sex. You don't have open sores on your penis do you?

You're a 2,000 to 1 shot of catching it. Why not get a quick oral test if you're worried, then an ELISA at 12 weeks.

no, no open sores. ive started taking medication for the chlamydia already and it seems to be working. i took a blood test yesterday and have scheduled one for 6 weeks and then agan in 3 months time. 2000 to 1 is pretty low but still obviousy possible. i'm scared.

My belief would be none but others may say a small chance. I would just say use condoms from now on that way you won't have to worry yourself at all.
