Testing postive Probabilites - high risk mistake!

Dear doctor

I know its too early to tell but I got a rapid hiv test at 3 weeks (clearview) which tested negative.
I KNOW this test is only accurate after 6 weeks, but surely there is some kind of probability that it could be accurate, im looking for anything over 50% probability just to feel better. ?

Ive had a sore neck and felt very tired the last 3 weeks... please could someone help me put my mind at rest, I know i will still get tested at 6 weeks then 3 months but i just want to know if probability is on my side thats all...

So I did insertive anal for about 5 minutes and did not ejaculate inside and am circumcised... one time exposure... are the chances low? (not as an excuse to not get tested just need to know!)

Also will people please not say still get tested etc cause i will!!!  All i am after is some rough probabilities/likely/unlikely just to feel abit better until my next test.

thank you!

If you did not use a condom you will need to test in 3 months to get a accurate result. Sorry we don't do probabiltys, we just advise you to get tested in that time frame if you had an exposure.
