    Hi,I think it will be wise to run an HIV test.at least to rule it out.depending on how quickly after sex you noticed these symptoms,they seem like the typical acute viral infection.loads of viruses can be transmitted by sex....EBV(infectious mononucleosis) the most likely culprit, others are HIV,Hepatitis and they all could give you the symptoms above.
