so i had a sexual encounter about 2 years ago. i am a female and i remember it hurting when it was occurring. not positive about whether a condom was used. fairly certain there was one. i have tested 3 times with various test... oraquick (oral swab thing) and traditional blood test. I tested after the window period. i know "rough" sex can increase your risk of contracting HIV. i don't know if my partner had HIV. he said he has never been tested but always uses a condom. i don't know him well enough to believe him tho :( with all this, like i said i have been tested 3 times... at about 5.5 months, 9 months, and one year. although it was painful sex (increased risk) can I be certain my 3 negative results are conclusive? I want to put this in the past.. and really don't want to test again but if you think i should i will. please give me your advice! thx.

Your testing over this period proves you are HIV negative and you can indeed move on. DW
