Hello there I would say that there is a very high probability that you are indeed negative given that your exposure and test were about 90 days apart. The sensitivity of HIV testing has improved greatly over the past few years. Current antibody tests can pick up HIV infection earlier than prior tests and by 90 days practically all (97%) infections are detected by antibody testing alone the remainder turn positive by 180 days. SO you could retest in about 3 months to be sure but my guess is you are indeed negative. Take care, LHW
