Hiv high risk exposure

Hi friends, I had unprotected vaginal sex with a woman who was on her period and later came to learn that she was hiv+ I took an oraquick oral swab at six weeks and the result was non reactive. After 8 weeks I took a rapid finger prick test and the results were still negative. After 10 weeks I took an insti hiv 1/2 finger prick test and the results were negative.what are the chances of my negative test turning positive after 12 weeks considering I came into contact with her blood and are my results conclusive or should I retest after the 12 weeks window period...Also since the exposure I only had a sore throat and a cough that lasted maybe a week and no other symptoms

It appears that the tests you have taken so far are all antibody-only tests.  The recommendation remains to test at 12 weeks for a conclusive result.  They are still very reliable tests, and your result is likely to remain negative.  

When you receive your 12-week result, it is time to stop testing and accept your test results.  There are no valid recommendations to test beyond 12 weeks.

Thank you for the reply, also I there a difference in accuracy when testing at 84 days as compared to 90 days since both are considered 3 months
It really won't make a bit of difference.  Any result that close to the date is NOT going to change.  Pick whichever you feel more comfortable with.
Thanks for the information and have a nice day
