Incubation period for STDs?

Looking to see if anyone can answer this. I recently had unprotected oral sex performed on me and performed on someone else. We also had protected vaginal intercourse. I have had been tested in September and was found clean prior to this incident that happened a few days ago. My question is should I be worried about catching an STD such as HPV, HIV, HSV etc.? If so, how long should I know until I have caught something? I am also suffering from extreme levels of anxiety from this situation. Please help. What are symptoms I should be aware of or should be looking for?

Hello,

Oral sex is a negligible risk for HIV. So in that case, no test is needed. The window period for HIV is 28 days if you go for a duo combo ag/ab test (4th generation).

For the rest of the STDs is a different story. Oral exposes you to Syphilis, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. They all have a window period of three weeks.
