HIV testing question and exposure

Hi, I had a handjob 18 weeks ago from someone and I didn't know her status. I touched her vagina and immediately touched my penis, sucked her nipples. I had multiple RNA and 4th gen tests out anxitey and having lot of symptoms like having on and off pain in my armpits, behind my ears, behing my shoulders. No visibly swollen glands.

Is there a chance for me to get infected also is there a chance for the virus levels to be very low to be detected by the below tests at 17 weeks?

14th day - HIV RNA - Negative
42nd day - HIV RNA and 4th gen - Both Negative
Week 17 - HIV RNA Qualitative and 4th gen - Negative

Irrespetive of the exposure and scenarios will the above test be 100% conclusive at 17 weeks

You wasted your money on such expensive NATs. You didn't even possess a risk from your event.

After such rigorous testing, if you still feel at any point that you need to test further to over come your fear or guilt, see a therapist because that's the only way you will be able to forget about this.

Thank you very much for the response. Irrespective of the type of exposure can I consider negative HIV RNA and HIV4th gen are 100% conclusive at 17 weeks ( with no if and but s)
Please see a therapist for your anxiety. You never had an HIV concern.

You keep testing negative because you were never exposed to HIV from what you've described. In an adult there only risks for HIV is by unprotected anal or vaginal sex or by sharing IV drug needles with infected users. Nothing else you can think of is  a risk.
