Answer: 

Thank you for your inquiry.

From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV from receiving unprotected oral sex.

From the information provided, this activity is considered to be a negligible risk for transmission of HIV. A negligible risk means that there is a potential for transmission due to the exchange of bodily fluids, but that there has never been a confirmed report of such a transmission.

It is also important to consider altering activity by preventing their male partners from ejaculating into the mouth, use a condom or dental dam, take medication (pre-exposure prophylaxis), and have the partner on antiviral therapy. Condom use is extremely important as it can prevent other forms of sexually transmitted diseases.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician regarding your symptoms.
