I do not understand you question. There is either risk or no risk. In case of a risk, the window period is always 3 months from the date of exposure as the manufacturers of the test suggest that there tests can provide a reliable result only at/after 3 months, this is because normally for the human bodies to produce detectable anti bodies, it take more or less 3 months.

HIV is sexually transmitted by unprotected penetrative anal/vaginal sex.
The activity you mentioned is zero risk for HIV. You do not need testing. Always use condoms and stay safe.
