Headache, stiff neck. Had sex with prostitute, condom slipped off, received unprotected oral sex. HIV?

Hi 7 or 8 weeks ago I had sex with a prostitute the sex was protected but the condom slipped off not fully but most of the way . I also received unprotected oral sex for about 5 seconds. Around two weeks prior to this I got a head cold no sore throat but just stuffed sinuses . This was followed by a headache . The headache then disapearead but a week later I began getting a stiff neck mainly on my left side pretty low down . I could feel a tightness which would sometimes spread to the right side . None of my symptoms were present at the same time . I am wondering could I have contracted HIV I have had no fever but am still worried as to what could have caused these

Welcome to HCM.

Cold, Head ache, neck stiffness are not specific symptoms of HIV. Anybody can have the same so commonly.

Protected exposure with slipped condom and unprotected oral sex carry only low risk for HIV. So you need not worry at all. But having a HIV test after another 3-4 weeks time will be helpful to rule out the infection totally.
Wish you good luck.
