Brief Answer:
No risk of getting the infection.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome to HCM.

You had protected sex with a call girl of unknown status then first you have to confirm her HIV status and if she was positive than also the risk of getting the infection is very unlikely through the way you had asked for so no need to bother much about it.

You need not to take post exposure prophylaxis for this because exposure is very rare. As such no test is required but you can go for 2 weeks PCR test for your mental satisfaction. If still any doubt left feel free to ask me any time. Stay happy and healthy.

Thank You
