Brief Answer:
Do an objective PCR test for mRNA (HIV) & Herpes Simplex type1/2 IgG & IgM

Detailed Answer:
Hello there.
Thanks for posting your query directly to me & do hope I can do justice to it.
At the outset, might I suggest do a PCR test for m-RNA. This is an objective way to allay your fears & confirm that you are dealing with a common cold & not any HIV virus. It will detect even a small load of virus & at an early stage.
Clinically, I do not feel you have anything to worry about & it does look like a common cold or flu with some stress induced apthous ulcers.
Herpes Simplex cannot be ruled out so please do a Herpes Simplex type 1 & 2 IgG & Ig M with titres & this will clear the issue once & for all.
Do not dwell too much on the condom breakage as the incidence is similar to a needle stick injury.
Do please do the objective tests & clear your mind. I would have recommended the Elisa for HIV test but the time frame is not conducive & it has to be repeated after 6 months which will add to the burden of stress. Go with the PCR & the Herpes serum/blood tests & put the episode behind you.
Do remember to keep your self hydrated well & perhaps a B-complex addition to your diet with Vit C will boost your immunity & make you feel better soon & prevent colds.
Good Luck & Godspeed.

Good Luck. Dont worry the tests are simply to allay your fear. My gut feeling is they will be negative.

What could make my heart feel like it's pounding hard in my chest? Blood pressure and heart rate are normal. I've had 2 stress echo tests a year apart and everything looked good on both. I am 51, female, in menopause, and was dealing with anxiety this past summer/fall.

I heard that if you have chronic stress , no hair loss product will work to restore or regrow hair until the stress is relieved, is this correct? I take 1000mg of Saw Palmetto, 1000 mg of Biolin, use Ducray Anastim Chronostim (started 4 days ago), and take a multvitamin with B100 complex. I suffer from manic depression as well.
