Use condoms and practice safe sex. If it makes you feel better test again in another 3-6 months.

Just because she has HIV doesn't mean you got it. Unprotected exposure does not always mean infection.

Matter of fact your testing history proves you are HIV negative.

You have now tested negative at 6 months. That is 3 months outside the widely accepted window period and considered conclusive even by the MOST conserative recommendations.

The fact is that you are not infected. What to do about that situation?

Well first don't listen to people that tell you to continue needless testing just because one partner is HIV+. You want to keep a level head and not feed into others irrational fears.

Second. Accept the fact you are negative. Celebrate it and move on with your life.

I agree with this post - learn from this experience, and always practice safe sex!
