Welcome to e health forum.

In case both partners have never had sexual intercourse or anal intercourse before, then it is highly unlikely for them to have any sexually transmitted infections. hence there is no need to test for HIV or other STDs in such a situation.

Usually, screening tests for HIV ( HIV antibody tests ) should be done after 4 weeks of the suspected exposure.
