Unhappy Please your opinion. Testing is pos then neg. What to do?

Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong place.
10 weeks ago had low risk unprotected oral from femal of unknown HIV status although was told later she was sw. Not street walker, more high class escort type. Fingered her Ben received oral for 30-45 seconds. Low risk is what I read. I'm being honest here despite the info I read some say there is a risk some say there isn't it's hard to not stress. So I wasn't even sure I wS going to test however I broke down after testing for other stds which All were neg I ordered online 2 oral swab ( I thougt the were the oraquick rapids) and two urine HIV tests. In my OCD state I thought I would eliminate the possibility of false reading with multiple tests. Any how hey arrived. I immediately was bummed as they were a home- bio cheap looking test kit and not orasure at all. Anyways I took the first oral swab test, dropped the fluid on the tray, it flushed pink and a control line and positive line appeared I do not remember if it appeared immediately or gradually but it was early into the 20 minute waiting period. Of course I freaked. So I opened the second oral test redid it hands shaking thinking my life is over. 20 minutes later second test is negative......... Ok so I gather the urine for the urine tests. I take the urine tests and both test show nothing..... They don't work at all. Nothing. So to recap 1 pos 1 neg 2 tests that don't work at all.
Scared out of my mind I call planned parenthood Which I didn't want to do as they report to the state by law and beg them to me with rapid test. They reluctantly agreed. I cannot begin to describe how I felt at this moment. Anyways the lady at pp takes me back has me swab my gums and then 20 minutes later shows me a negative rapid Krause 1/2 test. Relieved? Of course..... Temporarily. I M aware this test is soon going to be available everywhere thank god. So I start reading about it to find out CFO
Nthe fdas site the estimate that 1 in 12 of these tests will report a fLse negative! Don't believe it google it.... The lady at planned parenthood said it was 99.8% accurate. From what I read testing at 9 and half 10 weeks should have been fine anyways. I'm not going to talk symptoms we all know when your going through this they are their even if only in your head. So yeah I've had a low grade fever for 4-5 days now week 10 and diarhea fatigue soreness etc. What happened here? I did forget to mention when I did the second test bought from the Internet I did not flush pink as the tests do. The strip stayed white however a control line did appear.
Did I have a correct pos then a bad test then a 1-12 false Meg from pp?
I'm at a loss. I want to rationalize given te risk that it was minimal not non-existent to begin with and that I just got took with crap off the net and that the pp test is accurate at 9 and a half weeks. If you've gone through this then you know how hard this can be. The last thing you ever want to see is a pos HIV test you just took trust me. I've seen it... Jus not sure I should dispute or believe it.
Please your thoughts?
Sorry for the typos...... Sent from very small phone.

You never had a risk for contracting HIV from the situation that you've provided and never needed testing. You can disregard any positive test as a false positive. Given that you bought a non-FDA approved test off the internet, it's not particularly surprising that the test malfunctioned- you can consider those tests garbage. The rapid test at Planned Parenthood confirms that you never had an exposure. Again, this was a no risk situation- nobody in the world has ever been shown to be infected through oral sex, and saliva is known to neutralize HIV- you never had an HIV concern and should just forget about your SW adventure and move on with your life.

Re: Please your opinion. Testing is pos then neg. What to do?

luz, oral is zero risk - period. Their have been no reliable reported case's of hiv transmission in this manner and that includes studys with couples where one partner had hiv.

Your test results prove your status, you do not need to test again as you did not have any risk.
If its your ocd that is creating this concern then healthboards has a ocd forum where you may be able to get help. As for hiv, relax your fine.

Hope that helps
