Brief Answer: Tests done on 30th day are conclusive. HIV free Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. Insertive vaginal sex carries a risk of 5/10000 exposures as per CDC,Atlanta. Your sex partner could have been a HIV negative woman. Nearly 30-40% of spouses of HIV positive individuals remain HIV negative in spite of their regular sex with their reactive partners for years together and they are called as Sero- discordant couple. So your lucky enough not getting infected with HIV. Your tests done on 30th day (Combo/DUO, RNA Real time PCR ) are more specific and more conclusive that you are HIV free and you need no more test for HIV. You can carry on your normal routine without any stress or strain. As you said try to stick to safe sex in future. Dr S.Murugan
