6 months is considered conclusive even if you know the person you had unprotected sex with was in fact HIV positive.

Do you know the status of the woman you had sex with? If not then you are assuming that she is positive which is a very big assumption (even if she's a sex worker or member of other high risk group)

I would trust your test and not read as many posts in here since they scare you.

good luck

Your 6 month test is accurate plus female to male is FAR less common than male to female. I would trust your results there is no reason to assume they are wrong.

Be careful what you read on this boards. There are some clueless uneducated schmucks on here that don't know what they are talking about. Ignore the denialists and "aids is a myth" crap too.

Almost no risk on oral sex especially to the receiver since saliva is a good barrier against HIV. You do not have HIV then based on this information.
