Quantity of HIV transmitted affect window period?

Dear Team- Thank you for taking the time to answer this.
I had protected vaginal sex, the condom broke right in the beginning and he pulled out immediately. I was tested at 6 weeks, 3 months and 4 months with 4th generation HIV test all coming back negative. My concern is I had two vaginal yeast infections about 7 weeks after and then again about 13 weeks after. I also noticed about 15 weeks after my right lymph node on my neck is swollen.
My questions:
1- Are my tests conclusive or do I need to retest at 6 months
2- Does the quantity of HIV transmitted affect the window period. Meaning if only a small amount of HIV was transmitted would it take longer for my body to respond to it thus lengthening the window period?
Thank you!

Too much Worried

I had a protected sex with a sex worker whom I think to be hiv positive, I have used the condom but there was small cut at the base of the penis which was made two hours before while shaving which was bleeding at a time when it was made, and stopped within a few seconds. Although I have used the condom but I think It did not covered the cut which might have exposed to the vaginal fluids.Cut was made two hours ago and is not bleeding.After second day of sex I had a high fever with chronic fatigue which lasted less than two weeks than after two weeks I am suffering from white coated tongue with ulcers in mouth but no fever, I think my lymph node had started swelling and will get enlarged by the end of the week.
What is my risk of contracting hiv through small non bleeding cut which has been exposed to vaginal fluids.

Syphilis Diagnosis

3 Months ago i started having a reddish rash (no warts or sores) on my face, over the cheeks area. I went to the doctor and he suggested getting some exams, i got tested for HIV, Chlamydia and Syphilis and the last one came out positive (1:32)

After the exams i got 3 shots of penicillin with the last one being applied by January 2nd. After that i haven't had any follow up exams until last week that i took the VDRL and it came out (1:32) reactive again.

Does that mean the penicillin didn't work?

PS: i haven't had any sexual activity in the past 4 months

Please advise am I at a greater risk because I am circumcised and the skin which tore was under pennis glan ?

HIV risk through oral sex

7 months ago, I had two one night stands with two different girls( a bout a month apart) while I was in Texas. Now I'm worried that I might have HIV. I don't recall cuts on my penis and both gave me a blowjob and I only fingered them. I already had a test done two months ago and it reads that I'm HIV negative but it also said that the reason that it read negative was that it was too soon( 6 months was recommended). I feel fine except for this Streep throat that has reoccurred twice in the past three months and severe anxiety as the result of my fear. Could reoccurring Streep throat be an indicator of HIV infection? Do I need to go back and get tested to put this to rest?

Please, someone help! HIV transmission through hugging?

Thank you so much for your time.

How accurate is the 4th generation HIV combo test on 24 days while on pep medication?

I have unprotected vaginal intercourse with a sex worker. I am very regret on what i did and after 62 hours i am on the PEP medication. Throughout the PEP medication, i am having the side effects like nausea & dizziness almost everyday until now (24th post exposure). I have taken a 4th generation HIV combo rapid test with Alere HIV combo. The result came out negative. Would the result be accurate enough? I am having serious anxiety and go to different doctors everyday. Please help

Need help please - am i being paranoid

I had sex with a prostitute 9 weeks ago. It was vaginal and I was wearing condom and condom did not rip. She did however perform oral sex on me with no condom on, I did not perform oral sex on her.
At about 2 weeks I started feeling something in my throat like something was squeezing my lymph nodes. I started googling (worse mistake of my life) and got myself thinking about HIV. I did got to the doctor at 2.5 weeks and asked to get test for all the STI's and all came negative including HIV. Then I got test for HIV at 4 weeks and 7 weeks with the rapid HIV test and they both came negative as well. Doctor also tested my blood for the CBC (complete blood count) and once the results came back he said it was low pointing towards me having a virus in my system (it's flu time so not sure what kind of virus it was or is).

I got my lymph nodes looked at and they are not swollen and I have no other symptoms.

Should I be worried? and should I get re-tested again at 12 weeks.

Thanks for the help.

32yr single male

Sir, I had visited a hooker on 22nd december 2018. I had unprotected handjob from her. She applied lotion and put condom and gave blowjob for sometime. I had sucked her nipples for sometime and twice touched her vagina from outside and didn't finger inside. We didn't take shower before the foreplay but had shower after the foreplay. From next day onwards I persistent felt chills, cold sores, rashes on thighs, cold fever, nausea, frequent urination,headache, fatigue. After 2 weeks I had pain in the lower jaw and mouth ulcers with many tiny sores on inside cheeks (both sides). I'm really scared that I might have contracted STD/STI. Please tell me what are my chances of getting HIV from this act and symptoms.
