This is not a risk for HIV infection.  Hiv is fragile and difficult to transmit and is only transmitted INSIDE the body.  You did not need to test.
LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A

As already stated handjobs pose no risk for HIV infection - in fact handjobs are also safe in terms of other STDs that are far easier to catch (things like Herpes, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea).

In answer to your question - 3 days would be fine to know you HIV status since you were not at risk from this incident. Should you ever have a real risk (read through the introduction material of this site to learn about those risks and how to protect yourself) then you should wait 3 months prior to taking an HIV test.

But again, in your case, you had absolutely no risk of infection and your test results will accurately reflect your current HIV status.
