PEP and HIV antibody testing

Hello ,I'm from myanmar  I used protection but unfortunately condom did outburst my penis exposed for like 10 seconds inside her Vagina then changed new condom and completed sex (sex duration was total 20 minutes ) exposure event on July 14 .I also received oral sex from her using condom that's why condom outburst because of less lube on going action , i think though . she was actually a sex worker ,she denied to go HIV test of my requested and she never had any medical records regarding HIV as well . so i decided to put myself on PEP as Tenvir-EM (TDF/FTC) seeing with a doctor in this case 21 hours of event after .On September day 2nd (6 weeks after exposure I tested non-reactive on HIV , VDRL test as well . On Sep day 15th (8 weeks after exposure , 4 weeks beyond the PEP ) i made Hiv 1 &2 antibody test again result outcome as non-reactive .Have you ever seen 4 weeks after PEP  negative later turn into positive ?

I have heard PEP has a high efficacy (>85%), especially if taken within 24 hours. It was a short exposure, so your chances of infection are low, but you did the right thing by taking PEP. 4 weeks is a great sign, almost certain, but take your 3 month test for 100% certainty. I'm sure you'll be fine!
thanks you for your quick reply , I'm 25 years old . I'm planning to test again in next week OCT 15 to complete as 12 weeks after exposure
8 weeks after PEP . i hope i'll be on Negative from this terrible  event !
