non reactive hiv test at 4 weeks

i hav a question that i had unprotected sex with someone on july 23,the next day i satarted feeling sick, sour throat and some fever, the a week later i got an infection in my eye and right eye turned really red. at that time i really didnt care much. than on august 25 i  had sex but this time i used condoms. but a week later i was feeling really sick, my throat gotten realy bad and i had fever. i took some tylenol and the fever went away but my throat ws still in really bad condition. so on september 22 i went for std check and also for a repaid hiv test. the hiv test came out negative but i ws asked to come back in 4-6 weeks. a week later i got a call from my doc that i was tested positive for chlamydia in my throat and i was given medication. 2 weeks later i m feeling much better..my question is that i m still worried about hiv. the nurse told me that there really good chances tht a second test will be negative too. but i m very worried. can someone tell me that a negative test at 4-6 weeks is really good..thankz

your only exposure was the one in july, since the august situation was PROTECTED.  that means that your test in september was right at 2 months post exposure.  a test at this time is a very good indication of your status and highly unlikely to change.  follow up at 3 months post your july 23 exposure for a conclusive result.
