Quick test accuracy and time after exposure

Hi all,
Do you know if Clearview HIV 1/2 STAT-Pak is accurate after 19 days of exposure? also the BiokitHSV-2 for hepes?
I did test negative for both, but it was only after 19 days of exposure, is that reliable? or need to get another test?
Please help.

at 19 days the test will pick up about 50%-60% of infected people, eventhough is encouraging in not defenitive, wait at least until 6 weeks for a 95% accurate result and then at 3 months for a conclusive one
