If you were the recipient of oral sex and you ejaculated into some one else, then it is more likely that the risk of getting the infection would be low or negligible for you.

Your symptoms are not related to HIV but to other common viral and bacterial infections, which will subside on their own in due time.

In case, you think, you may be infected with HIV, The only way, you can confirm it, is by getting tested for HIV. Having a negative test result will help you clear the fear of being infected with HIV.

As per CDC recommendations, the only test used to screen for HIV is the ELISA test, which detects HIV antibodies in the body secretions and or blood. The 4th generation ELISA tests for HIV, detects both the HIV antibody as well as antigens of HIV virus. Hence the test that is very accurate and sensitive at detecting HIV infection. This test can be done after 4 weeks of exposure. If found negative, the test should repeat it every 4 weeks until 12 weeks.

In case the test results are negative after 12 weeks, then you can consider yourself as HIV free.
