All generation tests are conclusive at 3 months, 12 weeks.  What was your exposure?

First, an episode of unprotected anal sex is so low risk that it is almost inconsequential.  The risk is LESS than 1%  That means over a 99% chance it did not transmit.  Think about THAT first.  Secondly, testing for HIV 2 is only necessary under certain conditions.  Like, location.  Or suspicion.  You have neither, I presume.  All other questions you have regarding your specific test should be directed to the clinic or doctor or lab that administered your test or the manufacturer.  You had a low risk, tested because it was a risk and if you did so at 12 weeks, I'd consider that conclusive.

my doubt is about the test generation. the results say hiv1 and hiv2 negative. certainly not the first generation because the first generation only looks for hiv1 right?

You are negative based on your test result.  Any further questions you have should be directed to your testing site.
