Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain exactly when you had your first and second examination (how many months after intercourse was carried out) and what HIV tests did you do?
Basically there are various types of HIV testing, and each type of examination has a different window period (meaning the ability of the test tool to detect HIV in the body can vary in time). A new HIV test called a fourth generation test can detect HIV very quickly (4 weeks after exposure). However, most HIV tests have an accuracy of more than 99% if done 3 months or more after exposure / after risk behavior. If indeed you have done the examination at least 3 months after exposure and the results are negative, then you are most likely not infected with HIV.
Going forward, avoid engaging in risky behaviors that have the potential to transmit HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. If indeed you want to have sex, make sure you or your partner uses a condom to reduce the risk of transmitting sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, etc.). If you already have unprotected sexual intercourse, make sure you immediately see a doctor (in less than 72 hours) to get prophylactic treatment to prevent HIV infection. The best thing you can do, of course, avoid doing unsafe sexual intercourse altogether.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
