oraquick oral swab question

I've had negative Oraquick tests at 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 10 weeks, and 2 of them today at exactly 12 weeks (84 days)

Does this rule out false negative results?  I think I am being beyond paranoid but my job assignment is in an area for the past 4 months that doesn't have areas to have blood drawn.

Am I in the clear here?  Or should I test again beyond this current time?

Did you have oral, anal or vaginal and did you use a condom?

I had unprotected oral and protected vaginal...but as she got off my penis the condom was off as I lost instant erection and don't know if there was any bare contact.  does it matter?  what about my tests and timing of them?

Oral is not a risk and only the urethra needs protection. If the condom covered the head and you just slipped out but it didn't touch inside the vagina you would be ok. Touching outside is ok because HIV is dead in air so can't infect outside the body. If you can figure out if the  urethra was covered inside then you are safe. This is an HIV prevention forum so it is always good to know if the person had a risk.
Oraquick is supposed to be done after 90 days to be conclusive, so you are a bit early. Odds are in your favor that you are negative with a negative taken this late, but the early result is not conclusive.

Your 12 week result will NOT change.  Some reliable resources state 12 weeks, others state 90 days, and both of those are very conservative.  You should stop testing at this point and move on.
