HIV test accuracy

Hie

I had a high risky exposure some 127 days(18 weeks) ago,thru unprotected viginal sex (3 times in one night) with an HIV positive gal,only got to know abt it the following morning after test and i was immediately put on nPEP within 24 hours,i took nPEP for about 6 weeks by ignorance,Now i have bought an antibody,ACON HIV 1/2/0 rapid test device, i i did the test and only the control(c) line is visible (negative), my question is,how accurate can this test be?its now over 12 weeks since i finished nPEP and 18 weeks from exposure, and can the test results be affected coz i tested my self,i have done all the steps outline in it.Please help, im in an area where i cant get tested privately,

thanks mate but 2 last question

i have some few pimples on my back,can it be linked to ARS rush,i dont actualy know when it started but only noticed it some 5 days ago?
Can this be Seroconvervion starting?

And given that i performed the test on my home at home,wat are the chances that i did it wrongly,although i followed all guidelines given.
