Symptoms after oral and protected sex

I had oral sex and protected intercourse with a prostitute 9 days ago. I've been catching slight fever (aroung 37.3) since the day we had sex and I have rashes on my chest today. I'm so worried that I can't eat. Do I have any risks of being infected?

Your activity of oral sex and protected vaginal sex are not a risk for getting hiv!  Don't worry. The only risks for HIV are to have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or share IV needles to inject drugs. Your fever isn't related to HIV and symptoms are never used to diagnose hiv. You likely caught a cold or some type of common virus which is pretty normal to do. Then anxiety creeps in and makes you think your non risk sexual activity was to blame. It's not. You don't need to test or worry about this. Hope you feel better.

Even if she is HIV positive and has a very high virus load?
Yes, no one has actually ever gotten HIV from oral sex. Not a single proven case. You won't be the first.
"Even if she is HIV positive and has a very high virus load?" No risk ever, and a person can't get hiv from a negative person anyway, so that question is redundant.
