Brief Answer:
No need if she has no exposure with anyone else

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It is always risky to involve with sex workers. I believe if a girl has a prior sexual experience with others and tested negative would definitely be promiscuous in future.
If you confirm she is involved only with you and no one else you don't have to worry about HIV.
So you don't need further tests.

Brief Answer:
Get ELISA at 30 days

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You can retest with ELISA for HIV in 30 days after exposure to be very sure.
Else you can repeat PCR RNA after one more week.
