You do not need to test anymore. You are negative from this encounter. Protected sex is not a high-risk activity. Using a condom for each and every act of penetrative sex is one of the best ways to protect yourself against HIV and many STD's.
Any HIV testing done outside of the three month window can be considered conclusive. You are negative.
