Thanks for posting your query.
Since you had unprotected intercourse for 5 minutes so possibility of sexually transmitted disease is high.The risk of the infection also depends on whether the person with whom you were involved was actually infected or not.

I would advise you to visit your Healthcare Provider earliest for evaluation and required investigations so that appropriate treatment can be started soon.
Meanwhile avoid intercourse until cured.

After any type of high risk contact, clean the affected site with soap water and if there is major contact then post exposure prophylaxis for HIV should be started within 6 hours of exposure (you can visit an ART center/ your doctor for the prophylaxis).

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
