Important to note that hiv is never diagnosed via symptoms. They look at risks. You had unprotected anal sex which is a risk. However, please note that it is very low. A one time exposure is LESS THAN 1 percent. Very unlikely for you to get hiv from this unprotected episode. However, you do need to test. On day 28 or after, take a 4th generation duo test.

HIV doctors can't diagnose from symptoms so no one here pays attention to them. You should stop examining your body for symptoms, because this just makes you more anxious, when you realize they can't prove anything. Try instead, to keep your mind off of hiv.
The only thing to do is test with a duo after 4 weeks for a conclusive result.
