It would appear that what you are asking are (at first) the risks from what you engaged in.

These are the statistics we use for various sexual encounters (and since you indicated you did "everything" I'll include oral and both receptive and insertive anal intercourse).

For oral sex (both giving and receiving), unprotected oral sex carries an estimated risk of .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source KNOWN to carry the virus.

For unprotected insertive anal intercourse, 6.5 per 10,000 exposures.

For unprotected receptive anal intercourse, 50 per 10,000 exposures.

Again, these are all with partners KNOWN to carry the virus. Since you cannot confirm your partners status, your risk would, statistically, be less.

While 3 months (90 days) is the recommended time period for testing, the vast majority of newly infected folks (up to 95 percent) will have enough antibodies present by 25 days post transmission to test positive using current screening tests. Often those who can't wait for the three month mark will test at this time period, then retest at 90 days.

Your chances of contracting HIV from these events are, of course, all dependant on whether any or all of these partners carried the virus. If none of them did they could not, of course, infect you with something they didn't have.
