Vaginal sex of 4 to 5 sec without condom...during sex i faced erectile dysfunction problem due to anxiety..penis did erect properly..so did not inserted properly...ejaculate outside vagina
And also no sore and cut on my penis
"did not inserted properly" Did you penetrate her or just rub, because you have to penetrate for a risk?
Anyway, duo is conclusive after 4 weeks and the other tests after 12. It is abnormal to test repeatedly for the same disease so any further testing will indicate hiv phobia which is a mental illness issue so it requires a therapist to try to resolve.
Likely those vague symptoms you describe are in your imagination from fear of dying from hiv, but you aren't dying from hiv. Try to accept the test results and relax because if the symptoms are in your imagination they will disappear when you relax, otherwise see your doc if you are sure there is a problem with tired and rash today.

6 tests didn't calm your mind, so obviously another won't calm you down  either. See a therapist.

You need not 'guess'. You must firmly believe that he is right. See a therapist to find out the real underlying issue. HIV is not your concern.
