PCR testing is not recommended due to the rate of false positives and 2 days is way too soon anyway. But let's back up first, you did NOT have a risk to begin with. You had protected sex and deep kissing is not considered a risk even with your little wound from brushing earlier that day. Since you are obviously distraught about the situation, you may take an antibody test at 6 wks and then at the end of the window period (12/ 13 wks) but there is no need other than to calm your fears.
