Little or no risk: HIV is rarely transmitted by oral sex. A few cases have been acquired by fellatio, from the penile to oral partner, but none have been proved mouth to penis or by cunnlingus (oral-vaginal contact) in either direction. Also, in the US the chance any particular sexually active woman has HIV is under 1 in a thousand (including sex workers). No testing needed if this is your only possible exposure.

Here are some ...: No one can give you a straight answer, If you and the partner are in high-risk category for contracting STD such as multiple partners, gay or bisexual, non-protected sex, anal sex, etc. , the only way to confirm yes or not is to get tested in 3-6 months/ More? Seek professional counseling for now and future.
