Risk of having HIV?

Hi, I’m a 21 YO female, I had protected sex about 2 months ago with unprotected oral for a few seconds. I have had a sore throat, stuffy nose, and swollen lymph nodes in the past week. I tested right at the two month mark with oraquick which was negative. I am I just freaking myself out or should I actually be worried?

Since you had protected intercourse, condom ensured your safety from HIV.

Oral sex is not a risk.

Your symptoms are unrelated to HIV, please see a doctor to treat them, I have a feeling these symptoms are due to anxiety, they are very much inline with classic anxiety symptoms.

Please move on. You didn't need to test for this.
