You don't need to test anymore for HIV and STDs.  You are definitely negative for those.

Genital warts are not always visible to the naked eye, and there is no test for HPV in men. You can still be infectious even if you don't see any warts.  About 80% of people clear the virus within 18-24 months of infection.  The only way to know is if you get a lesion and have it checked by a medical professional.
That's about all I can tell you about HPV, unfortunately.

usually, how long after exposure will genital wart show up?
Usually, it's 2-3 months, if you have the kind that gives you warts.

There are two kinds - one that gives you warts, and one that doesn't. If you get the kind that doesn't, you'll never get symptoms.

All HPV clears from the body within 2 years in 90% of those who have it. Others just takes longer.

Did you use condoms? Condoms offer significant protection against HPV. It's not total protection, but it does help a lot.

I used a condom during vaginal sex, but I let a prostitute suck my penis without a condom. Even though it's been 5 months since sex, I don't have warts, but I'm still worried.
Oral sex is lower risk than vaginal or anal sex, but the risk for oral sex is usually the kind of HPV that won't give you symptoms.

Really, stop worrying. HPV is incredibly common, and most of us will get it at least once in our lifetimes.

I don't know if you're so worried because you went outside a relationship, or religious reasons, or what, but your risk is really low.
