One Time Unprotected Sex for Short duration?


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.



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.
