It depends. What was your risk? Which test was it? A 4th generation duo is considered conclusive at 28 days by many experts. But all tests currently on the market are considered conclusive at 12 weeks.

HIV-1 antigen and HIV-1/HIV-2 antibodies were not

detected. There is no laboratory evidence of HIV


above was the HIV test that was taken and the result...i just feel anxiety at the moment that i still need to retest even though this test was take 3 days ago and my exposure was Jan 17th 2017

You're conclusively negative based on that result. You don't have HIV. Time to move on and put this behind you.
