protected vaginal sex risk

I had protected sex on March 30 with a woman. It was just protected vaginal (I'm a guy). I didn't think much of it, but lately I've felt a loss of appetite and other symptoms. I plan on getting tested early next month just for peace of mind. I know people say condom use is no risk, but I just want to be sure.

If your protection did not fail during penetration, you do not have any HIV concern

It didn't break, so I guess I didn't have a risk.

Then you have no reason to worry about, you had protected sex and protection means protection
