Should i do a retest?

Hi guys,

My exposure was unprotected vaginal with a sex worker of unknown status. A week after the incident had some symptoms but nothing major. Only thing that persist is swollen lymph nodes under the jaw.

My test are as follows:

12th day: 4th gen elisa ag/bg hiv1/2

15th day: alere combo

29th day: 4th gen elisa ag/bg hiv1/2

37th day: 3rd gen finger prick

51st day: 4th gen elisa ag/bg hiv1/2

All test were negative and the lab people assured me that the 29th day test were conclusive. What do you guys think?

The people in the lab are correct.  You have already over-tested.  Your test on day 29 was conclusive and it's time to put this event behind you and move on.
