Nothing you are reporting is HIV-specific. Only an HIV test can give you the answer reliably about your HIV status.

In many countries 12 weeks is acceptable for testing. At either 12-13 weeks the result will be reliable.

You do need to learn from this experience. When you have unprotected anal and vaginal sex you are putting your health and your life at risk. It is just that stark and simple. You can have sex with anyone you want to. Just do it the safer way which mean using a condom everytime for intercourse.

Good luck with your test.

Yes, a negative at 12 weeks is conclusive EXCEPT if longterm intravenous drug use, organ transplant or treatment for cancer is involved. Assuming none of those apply to you, then if you test negative it means you have safely scooted by this time.

Good luck.

85 days will be sufficient. You are HIV negative.

Not as hard as it could have been. Happy to hear about your negative result. Just use a condom everytime for intercourse and you will be well and effectively protected against sexual transmission of HIV.

Cheers.
