Welcome to healthcare magic!
HIV do not manifest in a week, it is not a manifestation of HIV for sure.
But many other infections can be caused by oral sex like herpes, hepatitis viral infections, chlamydial infection etc., which can have similar presentation.
You should get examined and investigated for these STDs.
Condoms are nor hunred per cent secure but nearly 100per cent if you use them correctly.
I hope you would get benefitted from my advise.
Wish you a good health.

Why nearly and not 100%?
Is it because these can brake or because the liquids can penetrate into condoms?

Another question
Since I used three condoms, makes that more secure the intercourse?

Thank You.

Welcome back to Healthcare Magic Physician's Desk!
Life is life that buddy!
There is nothing 100% with life.
It is mostly because condoms can break, slip, used wrongly, but if used in perfect way body liquids or infections can not cross them.
If used in proper way then one is as good as three or five.
Wish you a great health!
