Can I be HIV carrier?

Hi there I'm sure you get so many questions like I'm about to ask but would be very appreciated if you could give me a advice.

Last October I had unprotected virginal intercouse with CSW in Korea.

Since than Until now I've been in extreme anxiety over getting infected with HIV.

I had so many test like PCR, Elisa, Oral quick rapid, 4th gen combo rapid test.

They all came negative. Now I'm on 7.5month.

I've been dealing with HIV symptoms from that day I had possible exposure. All people tell me it's my anxiety causing those symptoms but it's pretty hard to believe cause can anxiety cause sore thorax for over month and itchy scalp for two month and now My soft palate is swollen.

At 3month to my exposure I went to the public health center for Elisa test and feels like the lady who did my test used dirty needles on me.

I didn't see her pull out new holder for my blood draw. I called and asked the health center. They said that there is no way they use dirty needle but I'm quite convinced they did.

I'm going crazy here.. can not stop thinking about HIV. It's taking my life away..

I have some questions to ask experts

1. Can I be hiv+ and keep test out negative until 7.5month?

2. Are there any chance that it will seroconver?

3. If I got infrected by dirty needle drawing blood. Would my window period different?

4. Do I need more test? If I need what test should I take at 7.5month to be 100% accurate?

Thank you in advance

Re: Can I be HIV carrier?

you are HIV negative and you do not have HIV
tests are considered conclusive and final after 3 months.
the tests are extremely accurate after 6 weeks.
move on from HIV
so the answer to your title question is no

Thank you for your reply Smithele.
So symptoms I'm having or I had are not ARS symptoms?

So there is no such a case some one turn positive beyond window period right?
