One Time Unprotected Sex for Short duration?

Question

hello doctor,

i had an experience about a week ago that i would like your advice on.

I met a girl at a bar, and had unprotected sex with her for only 3 minutes. Washed up after.

Next day i was paranoid so i did ask the girl about her past, she told me that there was nothing to worry about and that she worked in the us government and had been tested 3 weeks back before being sent on duty outside the country.

I am extremely paranoid. I dont live in a country where hiv testing is confidential.

Kindly let me know what my risk is, i am uncircumsized.

Kindly let me know if you think i should get tested?

if yes will a 20 day pcr viral load test be accurate? kindly let me know as soon as possible.

Will donate as much as i can.

Answer

Hello,

Your choice to have unprotected sex does place you at some degree of risk for STDs, including HIV. Consequently HIV testing is warranted. The best screening test remains an HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark.

Good luck. Be well.
