Welcome to HCM.

P24 antigen test and DNA PCR test after 3 weeks are more reliable and conclusive. As they are negative for you no further test is necessary.
Your doctor got confused and misguided you.
You need not worry at all for the past incidence.
Oral unprotected sex has very low risk, but in presence of Glossitis, the risk is slightly more. But with your negative DNA test rules out that possibility.
You are safe and not to worry any more.

The chances of acquiring HIV occurs in 2 cases:
1. If your partner is affected with HIV
2. If there is any cut/raw surface in your organ through which the infection can spread.

If the above mentioned criteria doesn't hold true for your case, then there is no need to worry about getting HIV.

There are certain tests like p24 assay or PCR for HIV, which becomes positive within a week and are almost 100 % sensitive.
Even the presence of a single virus in the body can be detected by PCR.
So, if this test comes negative, you can be sure that you are safe.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
