Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There is something called Window period in HIV testing. If negative now it means you are either not having the disease but it can also mean that the virus has not attained full number in your body to be detected yet and will take 3 months to do so. That is why it is best if you check again after 3 months to be sure.
