STD Likelihood/Window Period

A couple months ago I had a casual encounter with a girl. I had protected vaginal sex with her, but I performed unprotected oral sex on her. I am unaware of her STD status so I can't seem to shake this concern. I went and got test for HIV antibody, gonnorrhea, chlamydia, Hep B, Hep C, syphilis, HSV-1 and HSV-2 (IGG test) at the 6 week mark. How likely was my exposure during this encounter? How much can I trust the STD tests at the 6 week mark? Should I get further testing?

Hi, since your penis was covered nothing could enter so you can rule out things like gono and chlamydia only herpes would be a risk but very low as the condom still protected most of you exposed area. And if she did not have any genital sores at the time your risk would be close to zero.
With you giving her oral, she would be the one at risk of contracting herpes from you.
Testing at 6 weeks rules out syphilis but herpes would be 3 months. But with no genital sores developing about a week later would lead to you being ok.
