Actual risk of having HIV or anxiety?

A few years ago I was sexually assaulted by an unknown man of unknown statusand did not seek medical help afterwards(my choice please don't criticize that) and now I am scared to death that I contracted HIV from it. I should also mention, I have severe OCD and worry very constantlyand irrationally. I never experienced any ars symptoms, but have gotten recurring tounge 'lie bumps' and have it's fairly white in the back when I don't scrape it off which could be thrush . About 2 months back I developedverysevere bronchitis that put me on several antibiotics and an inhailer. Recently I have started depo provera and have experienced chills, which made me very paranoid, no night sweats. have tested negative for Gonorreah and chylamydia, and took a oraquick about 3 weeks ago that said negative, 3 weeks ago I also became sexually active with my partner, and he now has a cold (which I also might have from him) but in my head I'm convinced it's ars. Someone please put my fears to rest!

Relax, your Oraquick test done 3 weeks ago is conclusive, you do not have HIV
