Welcome back to the forum.

A single episode of unprotected sex is exceedingly unlikely to result in HIV infection, even if your partner were infected.  And statistically speaking, it is unlikely that she was.  And your symptoms are not typical of of a new HIV infection.

But the extraordinary thing here is that you're stewing about an event 5 months ago without getting tested to just know for sure.  Am I supposed to speculate here when you can get a definitive answer with a blood test?  Ridiculous!

Feel free to return with a follow-up comment when you have had an HIV test.  I'm quite confident it will be negative.  Until then, do not post anything else; since it's pointless to speculate, I'll just delete it and won't have any other comments or advice.
