Brief Answer: get tested once again now Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, You have had protected oral sex, and the tests are negative after immediately around 17 days of the exposure. The tests that you have done are highly specific and reliable tests. However, in my opinion, it is possible that you may have done the tests a bit too early. Hence, I suggest you to get tested once again now. You can repeat the same tests. If the result is negative now, then you are for sure, HIV negative. Hope this helps. Regards,
