Received oral sex, worried about HIV, Anything to worry?

I received oral sex for the first time ever. This is the only thing that happened. I did not perform and oral sex on the partner. To be honest, it lasted maybe 20 seconds. Should I be worried about HIV? I've been reading that its a practically a zero percent chance I could get it this way. What other STDS should I watch out for? How long before any symptoms should I no longer be worried? This person did say they were clean and checked regularly but I do not know them that well. I've been reading up on this a lot lately but would love professional advice. I don't plan on doing this again for a long time.

HIV can be transmitted by oral sex though this does not occur frequently.On average, you may need to wait 2 to 8 weeks from the time of possible exposure to get an accurate test result, because it takes at least that long for the immune system to develop enough HIV antibodies to be detectable in case your partner is suffering from HIV.there appears to be some significant risk of acquiring chlamydia and gonorrhoea through oral sexual activity.Hope this helps.
