Odds of Contracting Chlamydia

I was wondering about the odds of contracting Chlamydia after one sexual encounter with an infected person. We didn't use protection and the encounter only lasted 2 minutes. I haven't had any symptoms. I went to get tested but I have to wait a week and my anxiety is killing me. Can you tell me the odds of contracting it? I'm a 21 year old female.

Odds higher for a female over a male but from a 1 time encounter still low risk.
