If the test was done in a clinic, then your negative results -for the incident you describe-, proves that HIV is not something you should worry about.

Thank you for reply,
Is it possible that rapid test missed antibody for a year because of low quantity antibody
Any test is conclusive after 3 months so there is nothing left to say. It is time to move on from HIV and there are 5,000 other diseases you can actually catch but you can't keep worrying that some disease might be secretly attacking you.
Then all my positive result is false result?
I am so afraid

Hey.. are you getting three tests at a time?
Yes 3 times at one test

This is a clear case of indeterminate and false positive.  If you are confident that there was no other exposure than what you have mentioned, you do not have any thing to worry. What surprises me here is that why were you not asked to get a Western Blot test to confirm your Positive, because that's the right process. A positive must always confirmed with a WB and not series of antibody test. I suggest, you get a WB test to put your mind in to ease.
