HIV Symptoms?

Hey everyone,

I'm new here and wanted to get everyone's opinion on my situation.

I'm a male and received unprotected oral and protected vaginal with female CSW 2 weeks ago.  My situation is different than most because I have a urethral defomity where I have a permanent hole right next to my actual urethra opening.  This was a consequence of laser treatment for a symptomatic HPV infection a few years ago.  I'm not entirely sure if this would represent an increase risk in HIV infection.  Had HIV antibody test come back negative today, but again, it's only been 2 weeks.  My symptoms have been fatigue, sore throat, chills, muscle pain, and rash on forearms.  No fever at this point.  Does anyone know if this sounds like ARS?  Also, when is the earliest that I can have a pretty reliable HIV test?  Thanks for any help.

SALIVA is not infectious, regardless of what hole it goes into  :)

you never had a risk from protected vaginal sex or oral sex.

Thanks for the quick replies Teak and Lizzie.  

One more question.  Is there an off chance that blood from her mouth may have mixed with saliva and infected me?  Sorry if I seem ignorant on this topic.  I bet you guys get of answering noobs like me ;)
