HIV, oral sex and braces

Hi everyone, first off all I would like to thank you for answering my question. So, here is my situation. I'm a gay male who had an oral sex on 6th of June and I was performing a blowjob on a guy whose HIV status is unknown. After that we had protected anal sex after which I continued to perform an oral sex on him until he ejaculated in my mouth and I immediately swallowed his semen. The thing is I have braces so sometimes I get cuts and abrasions on my inner cheeks and also have bleeding gums after I brush my teeth. About two weeks after that, I developed a sore throat and a yellow/white pus like thing appeared on my tonsil. My question is: is there a risk or possibility that I contracted HIV from him after a blowjob with ejaculation and with possible cuts and abrasions in mouth due to wearing braces? I took a Oraquick mouth swab HIV test after 4 weeks and it came out negative. Is that a good sign? I really appreciate your response!

You had no risk to be concerned. Your test result is reliable. Your mouth has to be badly damaged in order to be a minimal risk.  You can test to three months if your anxious but here for oral it is not even recommended.
