Ignore the troll  HivWorry. I doubt that your test will change but a conclusive test is 3 months post exposure.
If your exposure was oral, you didn't have a risk and need no further testing.

Umm..ok..yea i figrued he was a troll well no Wow im sorry I thought I had put  my sexual encounter I had sex used a condom I'm just new to this board asking because in the back of the label says its like 90 something % safe  so that kind of put some worry in my mind. The girl told me she tested thats how she knows shes not Hiv+ but you can never trust anyone which is why I tested Im just afraid of some vaginal fluid leaking in or something sorry for sounding like an idiot. I havent had unprotected sex in like 3 years so yea I guess i need to retest in 3 more weeks? but once again sorry for not being clear we had a quickie with a condom. Happy Holidays guys!

Ja, since you report protected vaginal sex you don't need to test  again.

As Rod notes, ignore WW2. A moderator will be along to clean him up soon enough.

If your condom didn't fail and yes you would have known had it failed. You were never at risk for your protected sex and the other was covered in your last test which was negative.

Congratulations on that happy, if not unexpected result.

Keep those condoms handy, use one everytime and you'll be fine as far as HIV is concerned.
