You don't say what your risk was. Could you please share what that is? But all of your tests are conclusive and you don't have HIV.
my risk was unprotected anal sex with a sex worker for around half hour.
and could you tell me if it’s true blood type O people never test positive or it’s just a myth ?
conclusive of testa include both hiv-1 and hiv-2 right ?
thanks for your help
Reread the advice. "all of your tests are conclusive and you don't have HIV." It didn't say MAYBE your tests are conclusive; therefore there is no sense in you wondering about anything else.
thank you so much sorry for bothering
Yes, your tests are conclusive no matter your blood type.  You do not have HIV.  Take care.
