Hi XXXXXXX and welcome to XXXXXXX
Did you use protection?
If not, it is usual that people are worried and anxious after such happenings, but there is no purpose about thinking of the worst. There is a possibility that some of STD was transmissed,and swollen glands can be sign of it so the best way to rule this out is to do swab tests,some other symptoms are burning pain while urinating and pusy discharge HIV is mcuh less possible and it wouldnt have any symptom, it can be detectable 6-8 weeks after intercourse so I suggest to do testing after that period.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help"
