HIV TEST CAN ANYONE HELP ME?

Hi,

Last week I was at a STI clinic for a completely un-related reason and after doing the 100% screening test (for HIV) I am now crazy anxious/paranoid/scared about the possibility of having HIV. I am a white mid-20s white women. I've had two sexual partners (both originally from Africa) and two cases of unprotected sex. I am now so scared I may have HIV. On both occasions neither partner came inside me. I've ask both and they say they have been both tested recently and they are clear. Is there still a chance I may have HIV?
I don't think I've ever been so scared about anything in my life, I can't sleep at night and can't eat at all.

PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP ME?

After the DUO at 4 weeks, please follow up at 3 months with an antibody test for a conclusive result.

Unprotected vaginal sex with partners who's sexual history is unknown is a risk.
Fortunately they didn't finish in you so that helps.
28 days post the last unprotected sex take a 4th generation duo test.
