Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

With a history of unprotected sex theoretically speaking you are exposed to a risk of sexually transmitted infections.

As such chances of HIV transmission from one episode are low and around 1 in 1000.

You can get tested as per window period.Usually for 4th generation HIV test window period is 4-6 weeks.
The window period is time between potential exposure to HIV infection and the point when the test will give an accurate result. During the window period a person can be infected with HIV and be very infectious but still test HIV negative.

The symptoms can be due to flu and may not be related to STD.

You can get your complete blood counts as well.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
