Anxiety and Panicking of HIV

Hi,
My exposure was around later november 2011 till now I had gone for a

Rapid blood antibody test (Negative) on late November 2012,
Second test Rapid Fingerprick Blood test on 2nd January
3rd Test was Rapid Fingerprick Blood test on February 4th or 5th

I even had afew intcourses with the SAME PERSON like 5 to 6 times BEFORE the last one which is (late november 2011 the last exposure) do I have nothing to worry about ???
My total Exposure was 1 year and 3 months ago from now till that time (Late November 2011)

Is it totally conclusive and am I safe or should i retest again ? Because I heard there are no guarantees as to when an individual will produce enough antibodies to be detected by an HIV test? Is it true? If yes when you should I test for HIV again ? I heard it may take Years for HIV to be developed and fully detectable (Like 6 to 10 years) is it true ?

Please help would like to hear from anybody if its conclusive and that im free of it forever!

No it isn't true. Unless it was their very first test.

Sorry but what do you mean by "it was their very first test" ???

And just to assure myself I do not to take anymore testing in future ?

Just as I stated, it isn't true unless it was where they tested for the first time after their exposure.

Oh I see because Ive taken these tests at different clinics for each of them does it refer to that? I was wondering if its conclusive and that im free of it forever or do I still need to go for testing ?
