Need Urgent Attention of the Experts

On 28th of June 2010 I was in Jakarta, had unprotected sex with a prostitute in a bar, sooner I started feeling muscular pain, headache, rashes, tender muscles, so today i got the rapid immuno chromatographic HIV test done... the results were negative, i also did rapid Immunochromatographic, VDRL & HCV  on 28th of July 2010 and the results were negative, now i have a problem with frequent urination , and tender/swollen pubic area... i also suffer from fungal growth on my penis, went to the doctor, doctor said it could be prostateitis. now i am consuming antibiotics everyday to get rid of it.

I want to know am i really HIV negative?
I did two immunochromatographic tests 1st after4 weeks and 2nd after 5 weeks- both were negative.

most likely you cought a urinary tract infection with that unprotected exposure..and antibiotics should clear it up..you negative tests are very encouraging but you need to take a antibody test at 6-8 weeks for a goof indication of your status and a test at 3 months for a conclusive result..that is the stand  in this forum regarding hiv testing

drhhh says he has never seen  a negative test at 6-8 week post exposure turn positive later on..your 5 week negative sounds good..but you need to follow up with a tridot or elisa at 3 months post exposure for a conclusive result...

actually I miss calculated the weeks and got confused with the dates, i was exposed on 13th of June 2010, that makes it 8 weeks... so far got 3 tests done 2- rapid and 1- ELISA/ELFA all the three tests found to be negative... should i consider it a good sign of not being infected with the HIV?
