Hello, yes sexual intercourse with an unknown person without any barriers methods is a high risk behavior. Now you need not get unnecessary tension or stress there are blood tests to confirm you are free of hiv. Visit a nearest physician to get your test. You need to wait atleast 3months - 6months of unprotected intercourse due to window period, where antibodies to virus are still forming.
