I had a possible exposure on the 16 th of October 2004, oral sex with a women which the status is unknown of! I had cuts on my hands which were fairly new! I had an elisa at 7.5 weeks after the exposure and tested negative, and took another at 11.5 weeks, which was negative as well! During this time i was using anti biotics and cortisone, would these meds affected the tests or the results, and would it affect the body in not producing detectable anti-bodies for the tests to pick up the infection in the window period of 6 weeks?!

If you have done any reading back through the previous posts you would know that there has never been a single case of record in the 25+ years of this disease from any type of oral. Even if the other party were HIV+ the cuts on your hands would have to be done immediately before and below all layers of the skin to the mucous membrane and then you would have to make a total seal and then there would be a slight possibility but not an actual one. Once HIV is exposed to the air it dies, and if you think about it 90% of the fluids were saliva from you which is a known killer of the virus.
After all that info answer the question yourself, you know that 12 weeks is conclusive so the 11.5 is close enough if you think about how much you were not at risk no matter what the HIV status was.
