cannot classify as high risk, one time exposure is low chance to catch hiv if even she have hiv, testing is warranted to know your status

be relax and get tested at 6 weeks after exposure, if negative you will continue to test negative at 3 months conclusive result

Stay well

If it was unprotected penetrative vaginal or anal sex then you had a risk and require testing.One week is to early to test.At 6 weeks you will receive a more reliable result.Test for other STD,s aswell.All the best.
