Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

A single unprotected sex has about 3 in one thousand chance of getting HIV. A RNA test of HIV (as early as 28 days of contact) if comes negative; is good enough evidence that you do not have transmission. With no symptoms and test being negative, you should not worry,

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Incidence of transmission of HIV with a single unprotected sex is very low.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 months ago.

There are mainly two tests;

1) HIV protein or antigen or RNA test; this is good enough in the first 4 weeks of contact. If it is negative, that indicates that there is no transmission of HIV.

2) Antibody tests for HIV; if this is negative at 3 months of contact; that too almost ensures that transmission has not occurred.

So as you mentioned, no symptoms, test being negative; transmission is unlikely. With a single unprotected sex, transmission rate is negligible.
