Worried about risk from encounter

Dear Drs,

I had a drunk encounter with another male and am worried if I have put myself at risk for HIV.
I met a guy from Grindr when I was drunk and allowed him to have anal sex with me. He used a condom when he entered me for anal sex and he also said that he takes PreP.
He did not ejaculate through during anal sex, but I gave him oral and he did cum in my mouth afterwards.

2-3 weeks later and I now have a sore throat.

Should I be worried about HIV risk from this encounter?

You didn't have a risk for HIV!  Good news, right?  You had protected anal and oral, neither of which expose you to HIV.  HIV is only transmitted from unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drugs.  Your sore throat is not related as you did nothing to expose yourself to HIV. Try gargling salt water and see your doctor if it doesn't improve. But it's NOT HIV.  No risk

What if the condom broke during the anal sex? I can’t be sure if it stayed intact or not. Also, what about the oral with cum in mouth?
I have a headache with the sore throat too.
You would know if the condom broke.  You notice this as it is a very noticeable thing.  Don't add to the story because you are anxious.  You didn't have a condom break.  And protected anal is not a risk. Nor is oral even with cuts in the mouth.  Saliva and air inactivate the virus.  NO RISK.
Have you had a covid test?  Maybe that is your issue as we ARE in the middle of a pandemic.  However, HIV is never diagnosed by symptoms.  And you have no risk to even test.  So, HIV is not a concern for you.
