3 months? 4 months? 6 months?

so I see many different places saying that once you test at 3 months after possible exposure you can get a conclusive result? I did a blood test at my doctor's office and it came back negative at 13 weeks. I am not in my 4th month and knowing this result is negative still hasn't put me at ease because of this 6 month mark also. I have taken many of the OraQuick oral swab test and they have came back negative. I took one earlier this week, which marks 16 weeks, also negative.

questions:

1. are the test conclusive at 3 months?
2. are the OraQuick oral swab test reliable?
3. Am i just being paranoid for no reason now?
