hiv contraction concern

About 12 days ago i had unprotected sex with a woman from college and just recently i started to get a sore scratchy throat and stuffy and runny nose which has now stopped but feel a bit tired/ or dizzy ish and a bit warmer than usual, i havent had any other symptoms like swollen lymph nodes or rashes, no vomiting or headaches or diarrhea. Im just worried if it might be HIV or if its just me getting over a small cold, can anyone help?

Well, you had a risk from unprotected sex. Your "symptoms" don't dound like HIV. But you should take a DUO test at 28 days
