HIV conclusive?

Hello I just wanted to know my chances. After a possible exposure my last test was as 173 days(25 weeks) with a INSTI Rapid HIV test and the result was negative. A little faint but for sure negative. I have a Dr. appointment set up in 9 days if I get a test done there, what are the chances of my result changing?
Do you mind answer these questions for me in order
1. What is the chance of taking longer than 6 months
2. Is it possible to have symptoms but test negative?
3. Will my result change in 9 days
4. Could I be a false negative at 25 weeks.
Thanks for all y’all do for people on this forum

Was it oral, anal or vaginal and did you use condom?

Unprotected anal sex unfortunately
Which I know is the highest rate of transmission. Only lasted 10 seconds. There was no ejaculation. I feel really stupid about it
You test was conclusive, and you only needed to wait 12 weeks maximum, so all the rest of your questions are irrelevant. The first step to peace is to stop googling for death and stop examining your body - cold turkey.

While it is a risk, let's keep it in perspective.  It is still a LOW risk with less than 2 percent chance with a single exposure.  Why are you not believing your test?  3 months is conclusive. Why wouldn't you consider a test done at 25 weeks conclusive?  Symptoms are never used to diagnose HIV, only tests and your test is negative, no hiv.
