Please help -- HIV ELISA testing

I had a low risk exposure of cunnilingus and deep kissing with stripper.
I was petrified with the risk of HIV transmission.
Having gone through various articles in the internet, i got tested after the maximum window period mentioned of 6 months.
The test was ELISA and i dont know what generation test it was.
The result is NEGATIVE.
HIV 1/O/2 abs-index value < 1.00 NON-REACTIVE
HIV 1/O/2 abs qual  NON-REACTIVE

But my HIV scare caught back since i came to know about delayed seroconversion taking more 6 months in some cases to produce antibodies.

My questions

1) Does it take longer to seroconvert if the mode of transmission is through Saliva.
    (I am not aware of the oral conditions of us both so i am worried about the transmission risk since i have Oral
     Herpes)
2) Is the 6 month test conclusive and should i re-test again, if there is a possibility of False Negative.

Thanks a lot and my apologies for being so stupid to bother.

Seroconverting time has nothing to do with the mode of infection. It only depends on how healthy your immune system is.  3 months is now definitive so 6 months is like super duper definitive, even if your immune system was pretty much kaput.  No more testing, get some sleep :-)
