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!

Just curious cause I heard on forums it takes Years for HIV to be developed and fully detectable (Like 6 to 10 years) is it true ?

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

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 ?
