Brief Answer:
Be rest assured...

Detailed Answer:

If the sexual intercourse was very well protected and there was no untoward events during the intercourse such as condom burst / slip, the chances of infections especially HIV is very, very unlikely.

Further the current statistical data proves that single unprotected intercourse is not very significant to cause HIV infections; moreover you had a very protected one. Therefore the chance of infection is least possible.

At this point of time, if you are apprehensive, talk to you a doctor nearby. He/she can start a low dose anti-anxiety pill until you are ready for testings.

Hope this helps. Write back for clarifications.
