The most important fact in what you have reported is that you used condoms for intercourse. Unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse are the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV. Condoms provide very effective protection.

All that stuff about irritations/nicks on penis are irrelevant.

None of your symptoms are in anyway HIV specific. If they persit you should discuss them with your doctor. They have nothing to do with HIV since you didn't do anything that put you at risk. You do not need to test for HIV.

This is not an HIV situation. Period. You are worrying needlessly.

Thank you Andy.   I forgot another thing to report.  she done oral sex with condom around 15 min.
then I insert with same condom for a while.  maximum  4 or 5 push . then I stoped. is it risky?
I have one more doubt.  If there is a cut in a not protected area and there is  direct fluid contact
what is the differance between  protected  and unprotected sex.  in which way virus entering in the body?

You've never had a risk of contracting HIV in any of the situations that you've brought to the forum.

The important thing is that the head of your penis (glans) is covered during intercourse.

Nicks and such are not a risk.

And receiving oral is not a risk for transmission even if you aren't using a condom for that.
