HIV fever

I had unprotected sex with a prostitute about  8 weeks ago, and got a negative result for hiv test 3 and a half weeks later. And now I got a low grade fever  (never go beyond 99.7F) since yesterday and a sore throat for several days. No swollen lymph nodes and diarrhea.
Does this sound like an ARS fever?

ars comes at 2-4 weeks (NOT 8) and lasts for 1-2 weeks.  the associated fever will be around 101 degrees.

so NO...this does not sound like ars...sounds like a common cold/flu.
