Unprotected intercourse with a person whose status you are unaware of always puts you at risk of not just HIV but other sexually transmitted diseases as well. Always better to be safe than sorry. So next steps for you: 1. Request your cousin to get himself tested for HIV. 2. If that isn't possible and it has been less than 72 hours- post-exposure prophylaxis can be considered. 3. If you have already been vaccinated for Hepatitis B, you will be protected atleast for Hep B.
