thank you for your post and welcome to our forum. This is supposed to be a Spanish speaking forum and I would have gladly replied to your question in the English speaking one. However I will reply here and translate my answer into Spanish for the benefit of the Spanish-speaking audience.
If your unsafe exposure was four months ago, your negative test result is fully relaible, final and totally conclusive. You have not been infected with HIV, you can forget about the whole thing and move on. There is no need to perform any further tests.
TRADUCCIÓN AL ESPAÑOL:
Esta persona ha publicado una pregunta en inglés en este foro. Le he respondido en inglés, pero aquí voy a traducir mi respuesta al español para el beneficio de todos los hispano-hablantes.
Este individuo ha tenido relaciones de riesgo hace cuatro meses. Ayer se ha hecho la prueba Combo de VIH o Duo test (anticuerpos VIH-1 y VIH-2 y el antígeno p24) y el resultado fue negativo. Como tal este resultado es totalmente concluyente y final, sin necesidad de hacer ninguna más prueba adicional. Confirma completamente que esta persona no se ha infectado con VIH, ya que la prueba VIH Duo o Combo es totalmente fiable y concluyente después de los 28 días de una posible exposición al virus.
