Ejaculate in my mouth and I swallowed it

SORRY to interrupt you, but I am quite worried about it. I received oral sex from other male and:

(1) He ejaculated in my mouth.
(2) I swallowed his ***.
(3) No mouth sore but I'm not sure whether there exist any small hurt in mouth, and I had decayed teeth.
(4) I drank much alcohol that time.
(5) I cought cold and low fever about two weeks after oral sex.

I wanna know whether I had HIV risk and need to get the test?
Thanks for answering.

Oral sex is considered to be the extremely low risk behavior which means, it is a theoretical risk, without any documented evidence of HIV transmission,

Since you were not exposed to the risk, tests are not needed in your case, however you may do so, only to get your own peace of mind by getting tested 4 weeks after the incident. Your symptoms do not relate with the infection

Giving unprotected oral sex to a male is a theoretical risk and not a real world risk for HIV.

Theoretical risk is also when your mouth was full of gaping wounds like meth mouth.

However, engaging in any type of unprotected oral sex could put you at risk for other potential STD's/STI's.

No testing required for this particular instance. Move On

I really appreciate your answers.

To be honest, I knew that oral sex has very low risk for HIV, which however is a little different from my case that others ejaculate in my mouth. Large amount of HIV-carried sperm may enter into my blood circulation through some small wounds.

Besides, some doctors also claim that oral sex with ejaculation is risky enough for someone to be tested.

This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore  testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with.
The only way to get HIV is if you did one of the 3. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
We rely on the opinion of expert doctors and don't pay attention to whatever you can find on the internet or we will be here all day. Some doctors are overly conservative and use theoretical risks that have never manifested in 40 years of HIV history which is useless advice. You can get E Coli from a burger so that doctor would also tell you to test for that after every meal.

Fine, thanks a lot.
Recently, some CDC volunteers told me that ejaculating in my mouth is a high risky behavior, because virus may find small hurt on my throat, gum or teeth. And I'm not sure whether he is healthy or not.
You mean, if he (he is a gay) is HIV-positive, ejaculated in my mouth and I swallowed it, there is still no possibility for me to get HIV?

Thank for your answers.

I don't know why they would say it's a "high risky behavior."  That statement isn't supported by evidence, at all.  It is also not supported by the expert doctors who used to post here.

No one is going to say ZERO chance, but the risk is considered statistically insignificant.  If you wish to worry about, and test for, a 0.001% risk, that is your choice, but no one here is going to recommend it.

Thanks for @CurfewX

Their evidence is that Chinese CDC has detected two HIV cases this year, which... were said to be caused only by oral sex.

Maybe there is a misunderstanding among the public that eating HIV-virus equals to being infected by it.

By the way, if my throat is broken at that time, eating HIV sperm will still cause no problem?

Thanks for answering.

No one is going to change the advice, no matter how many times you ask the same question. Go back to your happy life and move on from hiv and reread my advice about meteor.
CDC records cases on the basis of reporting people provide them. People lie so many times. There is no concrete method of determining the mode of infection through which one has acquired the virus.

CDC also has a conservative approach. That's why they say oral is low risk exposure.

Think logically, globally approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV against 2 cases claiming to acquire HIV from oral sex is quite a number gap.  There's some food for thought there.

Now, let the logic prevail - Ingesting infected fluid is not the correct mechanism of HIV transmission in adults. Saliva has proteins that inhibits the virus.  Also, the gastric acid in the stomach inhibits the virus.  

The only risk for HIV through consumption of infected fluid, which is graded as low to no risk is for infants of HIV positive mothers drinking breastmilk due to possible under-developed integrity of their oral mucosa and epithelial lining, which is how HIV contacts the bloodstream, because HIV can only be transmitted when HIV binds to certain immune cells of the body via a specific primary 'receptor' on the target cells surface, called the CD4 receptor.

Hence,  below are the only viable risk for HIV contraction:

1. Unprotected insertive anal or vaginal sex.
2. PWID - Needle sharing.
3. Transmission through blood transfusion. (This is rare as most blood products and blood transfusion are subjected to preliminary screening.)

Oral sex is not a risk.

If someone, who is HIV-positive, claims that he was infected only by giving blowjob to others and swallowing the *** ( without any other high risky behaviors), is it going to be a lie?

You should be asking him, since it seems he is the only person that you believe. I'm not sure why you keep asking for advice here, since you tell everyone here afterwards that you don't believe them because you already got the answer from someone else.
