Yes: If you had unprotected sex and you are concerned about HIV, get tested!

Get tested/ see GYN: As with any painful process you should seek medical attention. Painful intercourse is caused by any number of reasons. Of some particular urgency is establishing your HIV status as well as that of your ex or any intimate contact you've had unprotected relations with. Until both of you determine your STD status (including of course HIV) you should NOT HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX until then!!!

And you need to use protection until you both have been monogamous for 6 months to a year and are retested to be sure still no HIV before not using protection and your history and relationship as a couple will be the only guide as to whether you can have faith in the monogamous part, which is a matter of trust alone (unless you keep him chained in the basement for a year)
