HIV from oral sex?

I had unprotected oral sex with a male five days ago with ejaculation that i immediately spit out, i rinse my mouth after. Today I noticed one of my tonsils is swollen and a few days before I was constantly having to clear my throat? Could this be an early symptom of HIV or some other type of STD?

HIV is inactivated in saliva so no one in history got it from oral.
You have to ask STD questions on the std forum.  It is flu season so you could have anything including an overactive imagination - but excluding HIV.

But I've read of some cases of people contracting it orally?
You have to go to those sites and discuss it hen, because no one here believes it happened and don't care what other sites say. There are no doctors on this site anymore, btw.
