Possible hiv exposure + symptoms

Hi guys. I had unprotected insertive fellatio from a woman. Six weeks after this exposure i had a cold. Mild sore throat(scratchy i would say) runny nose and 2-day mild fever. Am i at risk of hiv? Do you think those symptoms have to do with acute hiv inflection?

The only adult risks for HIV are:
1) having unprotected, penetrative vaginal or anal sex with someone of unknown status, or
2) sharing intravenous drug needles

No one has ever been infected from receiving oral sex, and you will not be the first.  You have a cold - rest and get plenty of fluids and it will be over in a few days.
