Hi, having tested negative a month after your exposure it's very likely you're negative. However, to be sure you need to wait 90 days after the exposure to get tested in order to get an accurate result. You can't say whether you have HIV from the symptoms you describe, actually you can't diagnose it from any symptom. The only way to know is getting tested. The symptoms you mention here can have a lot of causes.
