What are chances of contracting HIV or STD?

I had unprotected sex a few nights ago and I am quite anxious that I have contracted an STD/STI in particular HIV. I had stated that I would like to use protection, but after the insertive partner ejactulated inside me, I realised he was not wearing a condom. There were no visible STI/STD’s, and we used plenty of lubriaction, furthermore he assured me that he tests regularly and is clean from any deceases and infections. I was considering having a PCR RNA test after 10 days. Do you believe it is worth doing? Or should I wait until I can avail of a free DUO test at the 28 day mark. Also, what is your general thoughts on the likelihood of exposure? Thanks.

Yes definite chance of infection is there.more over without using condom is very risky. lubricant does not give protection against std. Go for hiv testing after one month of exposure. Go for ag ab combo test.
