Brief Answer:
Needs testing

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking.

You need investigations for not only HIV but for other sexually transmitted diseases like Hepatitis B, C,Chlamydia,Gonorrhea.

All these illness spread via the sexual contact and most of them do not have any symptoms for months or sometimes years.

Also please remember, even if your HIV test comes back normal , you need to redo it in 12 weeks from the exposure as the window period do not allow diagnosis in that period.


Please let me know if you need further information.

HIV test can remain negative for up to 12 weeks after exposure due to window period, that is why it is mandatory to repeat it after 12 weeks.
