Hi Devanshu,

Welcome to HCM.

All the ICTC results are highly reliable and as you had the negative result after 4 months of exposure, you need not worry. Further test is not necessary unless you have a fresh exposure. Only disposable syringes are being used in all centers, so there is nothing to worry about also.

Keep remembering safe sex always and relax yourself.

Wish you a great day.
