Oraquick at 1 year and 6 months unprotected sex

Hello, I am a woman and on May 7th 2018 I engaged in unprotected anal sex with a man I was dating at the time. I was unsure of his status and I continued to test using the oraquick and oraquick advance oral swab tests every month for one year and all have been negative at this point. I have an extreme phobia to hiv and I know I put myself at risk from this event. I then went on and dated a new man and we engaged in protected sex, my last encounter with him from what I remember and put on my app to track my sexual activity is that it was protected. I tested myself 6 months using the same oraquick and that is negative as well. Should I still worry that I have HIV or can I move on with my life?

ANY test you took 12 weeks or more after the event is conclusive.  It is long past time to move on from this event.  You don't have HIV.

So even if it is an oral fluid test it is conclusive? I don’t have to take a blood test?
That question was answered twice.
The word "any" means exactly what you would think it means.  Any and all.

It is abnormal to test repeatedly, so you are correct that 12 tests means you have hiv phobia. Any test is conclusive after 3 months so you need to move on from this fear or else see a therapist for one on one discussion. There is nothing to test for with the second man since it was protected and you can't get hiv then.

Okay, so I do not need to get a blood test done?
