OK first off Yes, you don't have HIV.

You have tested out to 6 months which is way beyond early infection so your concern over that is mute.

The newer tests check for antibodies and the P24 antigen which appears before antibodies can be detected. Those tests can be positive by 4 weeks because of the P24. That's early infection and yes oral swabs will not pick up an infection that early. But we aren't talking about early infection in your case.

I used to volunteer at an ASO. We used oral swabs. Now do you seriously think an organization that is dedicated to reducing the spread of HIV is going to put their trust behind at test that would be so faulty. We of course told everyone that a final test at 3 months was necessary in order to be conclusive. Of course it might be negative very early on....but not by 6 weeks. By 3 months those tests are conclusive and certainly by 6 months you should have put this matter behind you.

So despite the fact you had no risk, you have tested convulsively negative for any risk you might ever have had.

Final question. Final answer.
