No Doc on this forum.  This is patient to patient.  8 weeks is an almost conclusve sign that your ailments are not due to HIV.  Because you know the person is postive I would get tested at 12 weeks as this is what the CDC suggests.  You can take your 12 week test as conclusive.

Diarreah is not normally a symptom of HIV, especially for 2 months. Oral sex carries no risk for HIV anyway. You never needed testing in the first place.

Oral exposure with 8 weeks negative and no further exposures (or previous high risks)?
Only for your easy of mind and if you feel you need it,  get your 12 weeks neg. for peace of mind.

PD: Diarrhea alone not HIV symptom, besides that "real diarrhea" (if its what we are talking about)  for 2 months is seriously and you should do check that.

Best wishes.
