Possible HIV Infection?

I'm a young gay male who recently performed fellatio on two different men.  In both encounters, the men stated they had no infections/diseases, and the fellatio lasted only a minute or so without ejaculation.  However, I came down with a sore throat, slight fever, and general malaise a few days after the last exposure.  My primary care physician diagnosed that I have tonsilitis and prescribed a common antibiotic which seems to be working i.e. my symptoms are much improved after day 2 of a 5-day treatment regimen.  

My question is: Could this still have been ARS, and should I test for HIV?  I always use condoms for anal sex, and I always make a point to ask partners of their status.  My last HIV test was in early March, and it came back negative for HIV.

HIV is not transmitted by oral sex, so you are not having ARS.
