Am I worrying too much?

Less than a week ago I had a sexual encounter with a woman I know little about. I penetrated her with my fingers and kissed her. But what I'm really worried about is the fact that I had received oral sex from her. It was only for a brief period of time, maybe a couple of minutes before I stopped it. I am a 25 year old male if that matters. Based strictly on outwards appearances, there was nothing wrong with her or her genitals. I know that I worry too much about things so dark thoughts of HIV, Hepatitis and other STD's have been running through my mind. And it doesn't help that I feel a little bit under the weather. Thank you in advance for your answer.

Could someone please give me some kind of answer? My anxiety is through the roof. I just need someone to tell me that I'm worrying too much about something so small.

You have to be patient, we are not here 24/7.

The oral sex was low risk STD's. I would not be concerned.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to be impatient. It's just that since this experience I've been feeling a bit sick. First a sore throat, which probably came much too early to be anything and has since gone away. And now I have an upset stomach and slight diarrhea. I don't get sick very often so this has me worried. Although I know that me stressing out about this could be a cause.

It doesn't help that I spoke to someone from the CDC and they actually made me feel worse about it. But they honestly didn't seem to know what they were talking about.

I'm still kind of worried about this... I've been having some mild stomach sickness off and on, I'm not usually sick. Do I really have nothing to worry about or should I get checked? I spoke to the girl though, and she said she was clean.

Mild stomach sickness sounds like anxiety to me.  Not going to get HIV or much of anything from oral.  Symptoms of HIV not going to show up so quickly, first sign more like a month than a week.  Do the oraquick test in three months to calm your nerves.  By the way, asking your partner if she's clean does not count as a test.
