hiv symptoms

Hi doctors, 8 days ago I had an unprotected oral sex and protected vaginal in a berlin brothel (liberty). I am very worried after discovering that hiv and other stds can be transmitted that way. She didnt seem to have any cuts or sores, nor am I. The last time I had sex with a prostitute was about 5 years ago.  After 6 days of intercourse I started having a flu, but then i started getting better, now I am sweating a bit, lost appetite, have general weakness and slight shievering. I dont have a headache, sore throat. can my symptoms be a sign of any std including hiv. Should I get tested and when? I am very worried since I have a wife. pls answer

Sorry for asking so much, I had a PCR test  and other std's test today and the result will come in 3 days. I just want to ask a different question, how accurate is pcr test 8 days after exposure

It isn't and it doesn't matter, you never had an exposure and didn't need testing.
