Noticed ulcer in mouth after protected vaginal sex and unprotected oral sex. Am I at any risk?

Question: 8 days ago I did something very stupid for the first time (and last) in my life. I had protected vaginal sex and unprotected oral sex with a call girl (received oral sex from her and also did cunnilingus to her). A lot of doctors that I spoke with told me not to worry about HIV because it cannot happen that way and that I don't need test and should move on with my life. I was convinced that nothing is wrong with me until yesterday. The reason is that I saw an ulcer in my tongue and that made me worry because I know that's one of the HIV symptoms. Another reason for this might be the anxiety from the hole incident. A third reason might be that a wisdom tooth is starting to appear. What do you think might be the case? Can you please give me an advise?

First of all please relax.

Transmission of HIV through oral sex is very rare.

This ulcer as you suggested can be due to other cause or other STD.So it would be ideal to get checked for other STDs, as they can spread through oral sex.Mouth ulcer is not typical or directly suggestive HIV.Again HIV is unlikely to present in such a short duration.

HIV transmission anxiety is quiet natural in cases like yours and in my experience most patient don't feel relieved till they get tested.So even though I don't suspect HIV it would be good to get tested for HIV after 6 weeks.

Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
