worried,need answers

i am just wondering about the home access test. i had a possible exposure in 2010. i now have oral thrush/ lukoplakia and other symptoms. i got a hiv home access test express in july, i live in mississippi so it is very hot and humid here. when i recieved my test i left it in my hot car for about 2-3 weeks because i didnt want to take it yet. i finally took it and sent it in and got my results back and they were negative. so heres the kicker, when i called to register my test i entered my number and then they asked questions about age,race, gender...etc.  i did not answer any of those questions and hung up. heres my questions 1- could the heat in my car have done something to the test, and when i mailed it could the heat have screwed up the sample , and 2- since i didnt answer the questions they asked me when i registered could they just have given me a negative test because i didnt provide them with the information that they requested.???? i need answers.

any help is appreciated
