You are worrying needlessly. Fingering and masturbation such as you have described are not risks for HIV transmission, even IF the woman was HIV+. HIV is a fragile virus which is not easy to transmit. The activities you have described do not offer the kind of receptive setting it needs in order to be transmitted.

Read our lesson on Transmission which gives you all the basics. There's a link to it in the Welcome thread which opens this sections.

There's no need for concern nor for testing on your part in relation to this incident.

Andy has already told you that nothing you did was risky for HIV. It's the truth, don't doubt him.

Pravi, your symptoms are something for you to discuss with a doctor if they persist. There is absolutely nothing about them which is in any way HIV specific. But that's not surprising since nothing you did during this recent incident put you at risk for HIV transmission.

If you haven't already read our lesson on transmission, please do so now. There's a link to it in the Welcome thread which opens this section. You'll get all the basics there.

I don't see any need for HIV testing nor for any further concern about HIV on your part in relation to this incident. As for the sore throats, that's a very common occurence and as I said previously, talk to your doctor if it is a persistent problem.
