Wondering about testing accuracy

Hi there.
I was stealthier by a guy. I was receptive bottom. I’m not sure if he ever penetrated me. There was no thrusting. I felt something warm and that’s when I turned around and saw he had taken off the condom. I don’t know his status. It was a random hookup.
I did RNA test at day 28, negative
I did the 4th gen duo combo lab blood test at day 30, negative
Are these results conclusive?

" I’m not sure if he ever penetrated me." This part should make you sure.>  "There was no thrusting."

Yes you’re right, based on my memory. Of course this is part of anxiety playing tricks on you. It’s like a 50/50 chance it happened

This is an extreme level of anxiety for an event you don't even know occurred,   Even if you were penetrated for a couple of seconds, which you likely were not, that presents and extraordinarily low risk for HIV - and that's assuming he is HIV+, which is also unlikely, considering most people are not.  

Are you in West Africa? Was your partner a recent immigrant from West Africa? If not, your concerns about HIV-2 aren't rational.  

In any case, RNA tests also look for HIV-2, although it can sometimes miss those infections.  Fourth generation tests look for both HIV-1 and HIV-2 - but again, this is really a statistically astronomical unlikelihood unless you are in a West African nation.

Thanks for letting me know.
You’re right I don’t know.
All I can remember is I felt something warm and that’s when I turned around. So I’m not sure if he started cuming inside of me and then pulled out. If that’s the case, that’s why I’m nervous. I live in the Middle East, and there’s a large population from Africa here - so I’m not sure of what his sexual history was. These are all the factors that make me nervous

Your tests are accurate and conclusive.  You do not have HIV.

Hello, thank you very much for responding
It’s conclusive for HIV 1 but not 2 right?
I can’t tell if the 4th gen test detects antigen for BOTH HIV 1 and 2… or if it’s only for HIV 1 plus antibodies to 1 & 2
If it’s only detecting antibodies for 2, then it should be six weeks to be conclusive, right?
And obviously the RNA only looked at HIV 1
Please let me know what you think
