Hiv from oral sex

About 4 months ago I messed around with 2 of my ex’s one of them we had PROTECTED sex he gave me oral sex for about 2 minutes then I gave him oral sex, we also checked the condom after to make sure there was no holes in them, everything was good then about 2 weeks later I had a one night stand with my other ex boyfriend we had no sex however he got in a fight earlier in the day and had a cut on his gum  it stopped bleeding, I didn’t notice any blood while kissing nor while he gave me oral sex however about a month later I got a uti that would NOT ago away I’ve now had it for about 2 months, I’m sooo scared I could’ve got hiv they both told me they’re clean however I don’t necessarily believe them I have a test in a few days. Should I be worried at all?

This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore  testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with. These 3 are all you need to know to protect yourself against HIV. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
Save the test money and spend it on something useful.

Micro holes in condoms are a myth because any failure results in a tear down the seam and it hangs in tatters, so no need for close inspections looking for holes that can't exist in reality.

Nothing that you describe puts you at a risk to contract HIV.  

Condoms effectively protects from STIs.  Oral sex (Giving and receiving) is not a risk,  even if there was blood involved. Let's assume your second partner was infected which is unlikely, the blood only went to your digestive system - Not right mechanism of viral transmission.  Also,  saliva inhibits the virus.

Always insist on condoms,  use them correctly and consistently to stay safe from STIs.
