Hi Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off. The testing guidelines for HIV are to be initially tested at 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days. As long as there are no other exposures happened during this time frame than the results are conclusive.
From what you have described you had protected sex and your test so far have come back negative which is a great sign. Have that last test at the 90 day point and you will have conclusive results.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
