Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

The chances of getting HIV, in your case depends on whether you were having sex with a casual partner, a prostitute or if you are in a relationship with someone for long.

In the latter case, chances are almost none. The chances are maximum with a prostitute even though you inserted for 10 seconds. If your partner was just a casual one or a prostitute get a proper HIV test done. Hope this helps. Take care!
