Chances of HIV from anal sex?

Hi there, I recently had a few minutes of anal sex with someone who told me he was HIV-negative but then I found out he had barebacked with three other men in the last month. However, it was barely a few minutes and later proof showed he had no or almost very little (I never saw any) precum. What could this mean for me? What are the odds I might ve contracted HIV?

Having anal sex that too a receptive type predisposes you to an HIV infection if the other person is infected even if the precum is mild in amount. The cxhances of transmission from a person of an unknown HIV status is less than 1%.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
