Hiv oral sex

Hi, I recently performed oral sex on a hookup... we are both gay males. I am concerned to as if I can contract HIV from oral? My OCD and hypochondria is telling me to get tested immediately. Should I ? I made an appointment for tomorrow.  He did not ejaculate but what about pre *** ? There was saliva but I was so worried that we ended before he ejaculated. I am highly concerned of the risk of contracting HIV. I’ve read the risk is low and possible non existent. I had no cuts in my mouth that I am aware of and I have good hygiene. The male told me he was tested about a couple weeks ago and is HIV and STD negative but the concern is still lingering! Advice please. It will be much appreciated! Thank you

Testing is not required for an oral sex encounter because experts in the field of HIV research agree that it's not a real risk. By all means go ahead and get a test if that's what it will take to ease your mind. But expect to get a negative because it's looking for something you were not exposed to.  

For someone who had a risk, a 4th gen duo is conclusive 28 days after an exposure. All other tests on the market are conclusive 12 weeks after exposure.
