Transmission Of HIV From Unprotected Sex



I had unprotected sex with a female and I'm not sure if she has any diseases, but sex only lasted a minute and within a minute I washed my penis with soap. Suppose if she had HIV, what are the odds of getting infected? I had the gonorrhea test done after 2 days. If it comes out negative, would it be safe to say I have a very slim chance of getting HIV or do I have to wait for the window period for HIV to be sure? Thank you.


You are at risk for acquiring the infection if you have had unprotected sex with an HIV infected individual
