Hi,
Most HIV tests are antibody tests that measure the antibodies produced by the body  against HIV. The “window period” can vary from one person to another. Around ninety seven percent will develop antibodies in the first 3 months following the time of their infection. If the initial negative HIV test was conducted within the first 3 months after possible exposure, repeat testing should be considered >3 months after the exposure to account for the possibility of a false-negative result. In your case, several tests showed negative results already long after the window period. This is a good sign. Have your throat evauated further to rule out any problems with it. Take care and do keep us posted.
