Yes, they would check your blood for things like that and tell you that they cannot accept your blood for donation.

oral sex is low risk for contracting hiv. if you are concerned about this encounter with a sex worker, follow up with proper testing.

You can check out the red cross website for info on exactly what they do test for when you donate blood.  It's been more than a year so ifyou answer their questions honestly about  using sex workers, you should still be able to donate.

you don't have to test for hiv just because you received oral sex.  there are some std's that are more commonly transmitted thru oral sex but even they are really low incidence of transmission in general.  Personally I wouldn't even follow up on any testing unless you just know you won't rest easy about things until you do.
