Does negative result of HIV testing rule out AIDS?

AIDS is a progression of HIV.  You don't test for AIDS, you test for HIV.  Only people who are HIV + can get a diagnosis of AIDS, which is diagnosed with very specific criteria.

3 months is conclusive, so you tested WAY beyond the window period.  You don't have HIV.

You can not get aids without first having hiv. With proper care and medications available now days, a lot of hiv positive people will never develop aids.
