Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You had protected sexual encounter. That puts you at very low risk for HIV, hepatitis, herpes, and HPV. Licking breasts and nipples without any visible skin lesions does not put you at risk for any STD.
Do not worry.
You can get tested for all the STDs after 8 weeks since the encounter.
Since you had flu symptoms before the sexual encounter, that does not count.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
