Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

Unprotected sex and torn foreskin of penis definitely carries a risk for HIV. At the same time all the sex contact not necessarily infectious. Many people remains free from HIV in spite of their regular sex contact with their positive spouses (Sero- discordant couple). Similarly your sex partner not necessarily a HIV positive individual.
Tonsil swelling is not a specific sign of HIV. Anybody can have tonsillitis.
It is better for you to have a blood screening for HIV and ascertain that you are HIV negative.
