Welcome back to our Forum. Sorry for the delay in answering your question but the post got "buried" with your repeated follow-up posts. As i understand it, your exposures include condom protected oral and genital sex on 20 December and then, on December 23, sex with a condom which was put on inside out, then turned back the right way and replaced, exposing you to vaginal fluid that was initially on the surface of the condom. Now, 13 days after you last exposure you have experienced the onset of a severe flu-like illness which has you worried that this could be a manifestation of HIV infection acquired through one of the exposures that you describe.
The risk of the exposures you describe are low- the major concern is instance in which your partner put the condom on, then turned it inside out. There are no risks associated with receipt of oral sex, condom protected or not or by transfer of genital secretions on a person’s hands.
Having said that, your flu-like illness does have many characteristics of the ARS which accompanies some cases of recently acquired HIV. If this is ARS, a test for HIV antibodies would be positive in just a few days after your symptoms began and a test for HIV p24 antigen or a HIV PCR would be positive at this time.
In answer to your specific questions:
1) What you think about?
See above. Your symptoms are consistent with a recently acquired HIV infection but are unlikely to be. When persons with symptoms such as yours have been tested for HIV, less than 1% turn out to be HIV, the remainder having the sorts of community acquired viral infections such as the flu as well.
2) how many days the fever lasts when caused by infection of hiv?
Typically, the ARS lasts a few days and almost always less than two weeks.
3) How many days the sore throat lasts when caused by hiv infection?
Same as for number 3.
4) what are the symptoms of hiv infection? and after how many days usually occur?
See above- typically the ARS begins about two weeks after exposure and rarely occurs more than 6 weeks after an exposure.
I hope these comments are helpful. EWH
I forgot to mention that I have a terrible headache and a terrible back pain, in the lower back.
Scuse me, but i have to add Joint pain too. Fever is always 102 now.
You seem desperate and scared.
If I were you I would pay and ask the Doctor on this site.
That way you'd get accurate replies from real doctors versus non-doctor volunteers here. Not to say non-doctors are not reliable but you'll get more peace of mind asking the doctors themselves.
But i have paid. Is this the doctor forum?
This IS the doctor forum.. You're in the right place
Snowed in, in Boston? heh heh
Me as well.

Ok so wait the doctor.I also took 1 g of paracetamol about two hours ago. The fever, however, does not come down, just from 102 to 101.2... i am worry
Do you suggests an hiv test?
Sorry - the doctor hasnt addressed this yet.
you will know when he does. Myself and the other poster are just like you: here for answers.
HIV testing is up to yoiu. I doubt taht you have HIV but alsosense that you are worried. If so, a negative HIV test at this time would be strong evidence that your symptoms are not due to HIV. EWH
ok, Last question:
yesterday January 7th I did a hiv test. Is a HIV antibodies test method CLIA, is not p24 antigen. however it's 14 days after my last exposure and the 5th day after the onset of symptoms. it came back NEGATIVE. Now, according to my episodes and the days, What do you think doctor? Do you think it will need another test or I can be quiet?
