My HIV test is neither clear positive nor clear negative

I am a male, currently living in sweden.
I had unprotected sex 6 months ago (In january) with my girlfriend who is chinese. After 2 months (Early march)  I had a sore throat. In early may, while i was having sex the condom broke and I ejaculated inside my girlfriend. After 2 weeks i Had unprotected anal sex for a short duration with my girlfriend but we did not experience any blood at any moment (before, during or after). Doctor now in first week of june, i again have a sore throat. and its not going away, its been 7 days now. With some skin rash in first week of may. when I first talked to a nurse in a hospital, she told me it is due to my dry skin, and she can not relate my skin rash with the sore throat.

Afterwards I went to a doctor for consultation. I have the flu like symptoms as well so I asked the doctor to take my HIV test. Today when I got the results the results are "The test is neither clear positive nor clear negative, please take the test again after 2 or 3 weeks"

Please tell me does this mean that I have HIV? I know the report says that it is not clear but i never had sex before january and i never had any blood transfussions as well. I didnt take any injections(related to vaccinations) in the last 1 year, atleast.

If in this case, I should have received a clear negative, if I don't have HIV. does this mean that i have HIV, meaning if i take a new test after 2 or 3 weeks, it will come positive. Please tell me?

My girlfriend just had 1 boyfriend before. And my girlfriend is healthy. She never had any blood transfusions. She had unprotected sex with her ex- twice. Her ex-boyfriend had sex just with her as it was their first relationship for both of them.

I am really worried....

no it doesnt mean that you have hiv...more than likely just a glitch somewhere.

i see no reason why you should wait 2-3 more weeks for another test.  it has been 6 months since your exposure and a conclusive result can be obtained at 3 months.

test to know your status...

He doesn't need a PCR-RNA test he's out of the window period. A simple rapid test would be enough.

Seems you got an indeterminate HIV antibody test, the right course from here is to take another anti-body test and if it comes back indeterminate again, follow it up with a western blot test.

Well thankgod, the tests came clear now, with the doctor advice that i should stop taking tests :). But I must say, when I was worried, I felt that I had just all the symptoms
