This is an HIV specific forum. With respect to HIV, the answer is NO, routine blood work will not diagnose HIV infection.

Thank you and if I may ask, If one does have HIV symptoms can they last for 9 months. Attacking parts of the body 1 by 1?

You were never at risk for HIV and your test proved that you didn't catch it. You do not have an HIV concern.
