Hepatitis B "window period"

i wanted to get Hepatitis B test. i last had sex 2 months ago. i came to know that window period in Hepatitis B antibody test is of 3-6 months. i did not wanted to wait for this long a time. so i consulted 1 doctor who suggested me Qualitative PCR test for Hepatitis B and told me that this test can give accurate result after 72 hours of exposure. i took this test after 6weeks and 6days of my last encounter. and the result came fine. it was negative. now, what i wanted to know is can i rely on this report or should i take another test. if i have to take another test then which one and after how long. plz help.
