HIV test and Symptoms

Hi everyone
Best wishes for all and sorry for my poor English.
I had a Hiv test a few days ago. It came out negative. The test is Hiv AG/Ab. What does that mean? I finished my PEP course and had that test 13 days Post pep (43 days after exposures).  And my question is how reliable is that test? Can PEP affect Ag/Ab test at 43 after exposure and 13 days after last dose of PEP?
Recently I had a lots of symptoms like HIV such as swollen lymph nodes all over my body, sore throat, weight lost, joint aches. Did I get HIV ?? Please help. I am in terrible stress now.
Thankfully.

If you took PEP the testing guideline is 3 months after your last dose of PEP not 13 days.

Can you please explain to me ­hat is Ab/ag test. Is that 4th generation elisa or 3rd?. I've read a thread from the body.com. Doctor said PEP doesnt affect antibodies production is that true?
