hiv

i had an possible chance of getting hiv maybe 2 or 3 weeks before i got tested on 2/15/12, results were negative, but i was still scared because of this window period, so i got tested again on 3/17/12 and results where negative is this enough time?

the first test was at clinic and it was a trinity unigold rapid hiv test and the second one was ELISA/Western blot tests for HIV where they took the 2 tubes of blood, which i took in the ER, how accurate are these test and should i be tested again?

why do they take 2 tube of blood? the sexual contact i had was deep kissing, she gave me oral and i fingered her. im not sure if i had any small cuts on fingers but i no i wasnt bleeding, does this matter?

Re: hiv

You did not have an exposure to HIV and didn't need testing.

Re: hiv

Yes you are good. Your tests are an extremely accurate reflection of your HIV status, which given the fact you were not even exposed to a possible HIV infection were always going to be negative.
