HIV Testing Question! PLEASE HELP!

Hi All:

About 9 months ago I gave oral sex to a man of unknown STD status. Unfortunately, I caught gonorrhea from him, however, I was treated, retested, and told that the gonorrhea had cleared up. At the time of the original diagnosis, I was also tested for other STD's, including HIV. I had the rapid test for HIV and the results were negative. (this was at a 1 1/2 month{ 8 days from reaching 2 months}) At 3 months I  tested for HIV again and had the ELISA test;it was negative as well. At 6 months, I had a Rapid test done once again for HIV, and it was negative. SHOULD I trust these results, and let my mind be at ease, or should I test again? Is there a chance for a false negative, or since I have tested 3 times across 6 months, should I just trust my results as being negative? Please Help, this has been making me very nervous. I dont want to linger on this any more!
