UNSURE if tests are conclusive?

No one answered my first question, so I'm going to try again.
I now suffer from anxiety because google has too many different answers.
My question:
Should I retest at 12 weeks and 6 months as per my doctor???
I had unprotected vaginal/oral 10 weeks ago.

We both tested at 6 weeks all negative
I retested at 9 weeks negative except hsv1 (not surprised)
Test was 4th gen
Hsv specific rpr (syphilis)
Please anyone with any knowledge about std would be a great help, I only know what I've read on google and my doctor just tells me I have to wait.

Hi you can test for the below at the correct window period if your concerned with unprotected vaginal/oral sex.
1. gono and chlamydia 7 days
2. syphilis--6 weeks
3. HIV --28 days with the duo test
4. herpes --- 3 months
but without and symptoms like white puss penis discharge, burning while urinating or genital sores all appearing a bout a week or 2 later, no testing would be recommended unless you have a long term partner.

We both are in long term relationships, that's the worst part.

How about hep a,b,c????

Would tests be conclusive with the test periods you provided??
Not necessary
Thank you Dave for your help.
