Oral Sex + HIV exposure + Swollen lymph glands

Hello, I will try to keep this as organized as possible and free of my freaking out.

9 days ago - (extremely intoxicated, and extremely stupid of me..) I gave unprotected oral sex to a male whose HIV and STD status I am not aware of. However, he definitely has had multiple casual sexual encounters. I swallowed his cum. My friend who was with me at the time also gave unprotected oral sex to the same male but did not have exposure to semen. She has not experienced any symptoms at all.

7 days ago - I found a cut in the left side of the back of my throat and little red marks on my uvula. It seemed to have been there for a few days.

6 days ago - the cuts disappeared.

2 days ago - a lymph node in my left armpit is extremely swollen and painful about 1.5 cm in diameter

1 day ago - a lymph node in my right armpit is tender and slightly swollen and very painful, peasized

today - I looked on the inside of my mouth and found that my left tonsil is very swollen. A lymph node under my left jaw is also very slightly swollen but tender to the touch.

Note: In the past week I have had a small cut on a finger on left hand. Trivially small. I have also experienced NO other symptoms. No nightsweats, no fever, no fatigue, no joint pain, no sore throat. Only a small cough.


COULD any of this have been caused by exposure to HIV, even though it has been just over a week past exposure?  Or possibly an oral STD? If so, what should I get tested for, and when? Thank you very much in advanced.

Hi, oral sex is not a risk for hiv and is low risk for gono, chlamydia, herpes, and syphilis but not hiv

Hi Life360, I've done some extensive research and consulted a few nurses, and if there is a cut in the throat or esophagus, or simply bad hygeine resulting in bleeding gums or thin mucous membranes in the mouth, there is a risk of semen mixing with blood. In my case, I did discover cuts in the back of my throat.
