No condom HIV test conclusive?

just need help if i can move on or not. i had a sexual exposure in South Korea Last June 2014 (vaginal sex without condom with a prostitute that lasted less than 10min ) that was my first time. ( i know i put my self at high risk and i already feel bad about it so plz dont remind me why i didnt put on condoms)... anyways . ive tested RNA two weeks after exposure came out Negative

October 2014 (4 month mark i think) Combo test (dont know what generation, maybe 3rd) came out Negative
Jan 2015 (7 month mark) combo test , came out negative as well.

i should be relaxing and forget about it by now? or there is a small chance i might get it? Ive found a girl last month and we are getting serious, so i dont want to transmit anything to her. plz advice me on how i proceed from here....

Thank you in advance..

I fully understand your concerns, but you can stop worrying. 3 month test is conclusive.

Thank you . The reason for my concern was because the last doctor I saw he said to me for 100% conclusive results. Come bck and test at the 12 month mark. I know all say 3months . And I tested at 7 month mark and negative. Why the hell he said to me come bck again. Is he just want extra money and using my anxiety....  I'm sure that if ur advice was wrong it won't be posted at the forum as it is moderated by pro health doctors... I think

i know. i wasnt like this last month, the doctors i went to test said three month is conclusive and one other said 6 month. but what made me go crazy is the last one i went to (but didnt test with him, i ignored him) he said test at 12month mark as my exposure was high risk. i have a feeling he is BSing me and he dosent know what he is talkn about, thats why i posted my issue here to make sure my tests were all good and i can move on with my life and enjoy my new relationship wuih the girl ..

That's correct
This is the Combo test or as it is called 4th generation test
I have posted couple of hours ago all ofacial originations openio on the test Windo Period
The maximum and most conservative are concedering 4th generation test to be conclusive at 3 months
It vary from country to country from 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks or 12 weeks

Thx. But I don't think we have 4th gen. The combo test is 3rd gen I think. Is is also conclusive at 3 month with this high risk exposure??

Any test beyond 3 months is conclusive. Yes you had a high risk. Even if you do a combo test now. That looks for the virus and the antibody. It will still be negative.
